Opening Reception Event: Friday, September 6, 2019 at 6 PM
On View: September 6 – 27, 2019
Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C.
2370 Massachusetts Ave. NW Washington, D.C.
Join us for the opening of Newly Connected., a diverse group exhibition that illuminates the experience of immigrants acclimating in America through video, installation, and painting works by three contemporary artists: Namwon Choi, Kyoung eun Kang, and Kieun Kim.
Choi, Kang, and Kim each express their personal emotional transitions after emigrating, including the anxiety of life in a foreign environment, the hope and comfort that comes with adaptation, the process of forming new relationships with both people and places, and the resulting discovery of one’s newly formed identity. In a global era that often demands the coexistence of myriad different cultures, these Korean American artists each share through art their journey to establish and evolve the value of their own existence.
Admission to the exhibition opening reception featuring talks by the artists on Friday, September 6 at 6:00 p.m. is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Newly Connected. will remain on view during regular hours through September 27, 2019.
