City, Unfamiliar Landscape: Works by Three Korean Contemporary Artists

Korean Cultural Center
Embassy of the Republic of Korea
2370 Massachusetts Avenue
Washington, DC

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. proudly presents City, Unfamiliar Landscape, a new group exhibition opening July 6 featuring painting and mixed media works that reexamine the evolving, complex urban spaces that are home to an increasing number of people worldwide, by three contemporary Korean artists: In Kyung KwonHyun Jin Byun and Bora Jin. Presenting about 30 works of unique technique and visual expression, these three artists share a common theme of the city as a communally owned space that is also a haven for individual lives. For Kwon, Byun, and Jin, the city is a stage for creativity and an important aspect of the modern human environment, but its value is often overlooked due to its routine, at times mechanical nature. Cities are constantly changing in shape and character though: a place where familiarity and unfamiliarity coexist, especially as seen through art. 

Admission to the opening reception event including talks by the artists on Friday, July 6 at 6:00 p.m. is free and open to the public, but registration is requiredCity, Unfamiliar Landscape will remain on view during regular hours through July 30, 2018.
