Painted in Light: Digital Media Artist HyeGyung Kim Exhibits a Virtual Canvas in The Culture of Time and Space @ Korean Cultural Center
Feb 22 – Apr 22 all-day

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. proudly presents 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.

She experiments with connections between digital media and traditional Oriental art that represents Korean beauty through projection mapping and interactive media. She presents not only projection mapping onto Korean traditional crafts such as porcelain and antique wooden furniture, but also interactive media art that integrates light, sound, and movement. Ultimately, Kim hopes to provide an experience beyond space and time through this artistic dialogue. This exhibition aims to introduce 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 at www.KoreaCultureDC.org. The Culture of Time and Space will remain on view during regular hours through April 22, 2019.

Breaking Boundaries: Genre-defying Contemporary Works by Four Korean Artists @ Korean Cultural Center

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. proudly presents Breaking Boundaries, a new group exhibition featuring abstract installations, paintings and sculptures by four contemporary Korean artists whose work transcends the traditional boundaries—mental, physical, spatial—that define human life and how we experience it. Yunkyung Kim, Jisook Kim, Hyo Jin Yook, and Kwang Bum Jang each express contradictory phenomena in their art and subvert familiar concepts such as life and death, time and space, or real and ideal by combining a variety techniques and media.

Admission to the opening reception featuring talks by the artists on Friday, April 5 at 6:00 p.m. is free and open to the public, but registration is required (below). Breaking Boundaries will remain on view during regular hours through April 26, 2019.

Yunkyung Kim creates beautiful yet fatal abstract images visually reminiscent of a virus, through repetition and careful arrangement. Her Viruscape (virus+scape) series, displayed in a door or window frame, evokes the microscopic origins of both life and death, but the virus-like imagery seen through a passageway is also a metaphor for the complex and often absurd landscape of modern society.

Yunkyung Kim received her BFA and MFA in Sculpture from Ewha Woman’s University in Korea. She also received her MFA in Art Practice from Goldsmiths University of London in the UK and completed her Ph.D. in Sculpture from Hongik University in Korea. She is the recipient of various grants and prizes including the 2017 Prix Whanki Competition from the Whanki Museum, from the 2016 Kim Chong Yung Museum, 2008 Finalist for the Taiwan International Video Art Festival, and selected artist of the Kohler Asia Art Program. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, including at Whanki Museum and Young-eun Museum of Contemporary Art in Korea, at the Hong Kong Arts Centre in Hong Kong, Goodman Arts Centre in Singapore, and Sassoon Gallery in London.

Jisook Kim conveys a delicate coexistence of life, energy, and time in her artwork, using a marbling technique that embeds variating drawn lines throughout her multidimensional installations. These abstract and simplified patterns reflect the energy of the natural world in an artificial yet organic shape, existing in an ambiguous state just like the boundaries between reality and our ideals, or human life and the wider universe.

Jisook Kim received her BFA and MFA in Sculpture from Sungshin Woman’s University in Korea. After moving to the United States, she completed residency programs at ARPNY and 4heads Artist in Residence Program. She was selected for Diamond District Windows by ChaShaMa and the Governors Island Art Fair in 2018, and has participated numerous exhibitions including Built Emotions at Gallery Sensei, Memory of Emotions at Hutchins Gallery, With Something at K&P Gallery in New York, and at Jersey City Hall. For more information, visit www.Artistjisookkim.com.

Hyo Jin Yook questions the hierarchy and structure that defines the nature of human life in a capitalist era, using windows as her main motif in her evocative installations. Based on her experience living in a small single room in shared urban housing, a common arrangement known as Gosiwon(고시원) in Korea, she strives to break the boundary of between the tangible and intangible aspects of human life. Her work expresses this harsh reality measured by the size of the windows in her work, contrasting with the gorgeous Gold colors.

Hyo Jin Yook received her BFA and MFA in Fine Art from Hongik University in Korea. She was selected as a Bupyeong Cultural Foundation young artist in 2018 and has participated in numerous exhibitions including A Slice Room Project at Sidaiyeogwan Gallery, ART369 at Artplace, Walker at Art Project Susaeck Redevelopment Area, and The Exhibition is an Excuse at KDT Gallery in Korea. For more information, visit www.yookhyojin.com.

Kwang Bum Jang visualizes the accumulation of time in a physical form by repeatedly layering acrylic paints and using a sanding technique to create brilliant, vaguely psychedelic patterns of mountains and waves. His work expresses not only the flow and accumulation of time but also the coexistence of permanency and impermanency by breaking the boundaries of the past and present.

Kwang Bum Jang received his BFA in Fine Art from Chung-Ang University in Korea. After moving to France, he received his MFA and completed his Ph.D. in art plastique from Université Paris 8. He was selected as a MAC PARIS Artist in 2014, Artist of the Year from Novembre Vitry in 2010, and Juin de La Celle Saint-Cloud artist in 2009. He has participated numerous solo, group, and art fair exhibitions nationally and internationally, including in Paris, London, Cologne, Basel, Beirut, Gwangju, and Seoul. His first solo exhibition in Korea will be held in 2019. For more information, www.jangkwangbum.com.

All Nature Is But Art: Botanical Art Society of the National Capital Region @ Glen Echo Park

All Nature Is But Art: Botanical Art Society of the National Capital Region @ Glen Echo Park

“All Nature Is But Art” features artwork by the Botanical Art Society of the National Capital Region (BASNCR). In the early nineteenth century, the intrepid English author Frances Trollope embarked on a multiyear journey around the United States. Her travels took her from New Orleans to Niagara Falls. The spring of 1830 found her staying at Stonington, a farm not far from Glen Echo and close to the C&O Canal, which she observed under construction. Her advice to travelers was to “let no one visit America without having first studied botany.” With the current renewed interest in native flora among ecologically minded gardeners, BASNCR presents an exhibit showcasing the kinds of plants that Frances Trollope might have encountered on her journey around the young United States.

Meditations on the Personal: The Work of Susan Lyon @ Stone Tower Gallery

This April, world-renowned portrait artist Susan Lyon is showcasing her work at the Stone Tower Gallery at Glen Echo Park. The exhibition of works on paper titled “Meditations on the Personal” focuses on her world travels. Meeting people from other cultures has become the primary inspiration for her artwork. The exhibition coincides with a two-day workshop and a lecture on April 13 and 14, both elaborating on themes from this exhibition. Ticket sales for the workshop and lecture benefit the Friends of the Yellow Barn, a nonprofit organization that supports the programs and community of the Yellow Barn Studio and Gallery, the resident painting and drawing studio at Glen Echo Park.

Space Cowgirls: Ciara Barsotti @ Park View Gallery
Apr 6 @ 12:00 pm – Apr 28 @ 6:00 pm

The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present “Space Cowgirls: Ciara Barsotti.” The exhibition is a series that explores humanity’s relationship with the land and this planet we call “Earth.” It features colorful acrylic landscape paintings of the Southwest, with an added technique that involves glassine or tracing paper to create semi-transparent figures that float over the landscapes. When the series began, the figures in these paintings were tourists, visiting national parks and famous vistas from another time or dimension, and have since taken on more of a guardianship role over the land.
