Join us September 16, 2017 to celebrate the opening of In-Between Places: Korean American Artists in the Bay Area with new work by Jung Ran Bae; Sohyung Choi; Kay Kang; Miran Lee; Youngjune Lew; Nicholas Oh; Younhee Paik; and Minji Sohn. The artists featured in this exhibition reveal the reality and complexities of being a Korean American artist in the Bay Area—a location that has served as a gateway for Korean culture and a bridge between Korea and the West.
Organized by Mills College Art Museum, In-Between Places is curated by independent curator Linda Inson Choy (a specialist in contemporary Korean art) and Consulting Curator Hyonjoeng Kim Han, Associate Curator of Korean Art at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. The exhibition is accompanied by an academic catalogue that includes a contextual essay on Korean American artists in the Bay Area by Mills College Professor Mary-Ann Milford, Ph.D.; a conversation between the curators, and interviews with the participating artists.
In-Between Places: Korean American Artists in the Bay Area is supported through the generosity of the Korean Foundation and the Carpenter Foundation.
