Join us for the opening of The Culture of Time and Space, a new exhibition of digital media art that explores the convergence of Korean traditional beauty and contemporary technology, featuring works by Korean media artist HyeGyung Kim

HyeGyung Kim focuses on the convergence of digital media and Taoism, through the medium of East Asian antiques. She experiments with connections between digital media and traditional Oriental art, representing Korean beauty, through projection mapping and interactive media. She not only projects visual patterns onto Korean traditional crafts such as porcelain and antique wooden furniture, but allows viewers to interact with media art combining light, sound, and movement. Ultimately, Kim strives to provide an experience beyond space and time through this artistic dialogue between periods and forms. This exhibition introduces the vibrancy of Korean contemporary media art and the deep connections possible between traditional aesthetic values and Korea’s prominent digital technology of today. 

Admission to the exhibition opening reception featuring talks by the artist on Friday, February 22 at 6:00 p.m. is free and open to the public, but registration is required below. The Culture of Time and Space will remain on view during regular hours through April 22, 2019 (the KCC is closed US holidays and March 1).
