Featuring about 30 works in total ranging from paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and installations to digital video, K-Recollection investigates each artist’s cross-cultural identity while residing in the United States and their ongoing relationship with their Korean heritage. Artists also grapple with fundamental questions about life and social connection in the era of COVID-19, in some cases presenting art created pre-pandemic alongside new works from the past year. The exhibition and artists are further divided into three thematic sections based on stylistic approach and experiences: Assimilation: Cultural Identity, Variation: Tradition and Modernity, and Infinity: Transcendence of Time and Space.
The recorded virtual tour, offering an inside look at each artist’s creative themes, processes, and inspirations, will release on April 23 at 6:00 p.m. on KCCDC social media platforms. K-Recollection will remain on view online April 23 – July 9, with planned options for in-person viewing of the physical exhibition to be announced via KCCDC website, subject to local health and safety conditions.
