The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. proudly presents Crossover: East and West, a new group exhibition featuring ceramic, installation, painting, and video art that question and inform the Asian immigrant experience in America through the works of four accomplished Korean American artists: Victoria Jang, Christina Ko, Jang Soon Im, and Eun Kyung Suh.
Crossover explores the relationship between common notions of Eastern and Western culture from a Korean-American perspective and the effects of cross-cultural phenomena on individuals and minority groups in society. Set between two timely and important occasions, Korean American Day in the U.S. on Jan. 13 and Korea’s traditional Lunar New Year holiday which falls on Feb. 16 in 2018, this exhibition presents a diverse array of art that visualizes current cultural and social issues in terms of both Korean contemporary identity and past heritage.
Admission to the opening reception event including talks by the artists on Friday, Feb. 2 at 6:00 p.m. is free and open to the public, but registration is required (below). Crossover will remain on view through Feb. 28, 2018.
