In/Flux: Art of Korean Diaspora
On view from Friday, September 28, 2018 through January 6, 2019
MOV and The Consulate General of the Republic of Korea are proud to present In/Flux: Art of Korean Diaspora. The exhibition features selected works of Jin-me Yoon, Junghong Kim, and Jin Hwa Kim, artists originally from the Republic of Korea now based in the Vancouver area. Over the course of four months, MOV’s curatorial team visited their homes and studios to witness how they use traditions old and new, inherited and adopted, to parse how Vancouver influences both their identity and work.
Jin-me Yoon uses photography and video installations to explore questions of place and identity. Selected works featured include Group of Sixty Seven, Touring Home from Away, and it is this/it is that. Jin-me Yoon is also a professor at Simon Fraser University's School for the Contemporary Arts.
Jin Hwa Kim (Baiksuk) has been practicing calligraphy for 75 years to great acclaim in both Korea and Canada. Selected works include large scale scrolls featuring both Chinese and Korean calligraphy.
Junghong Kim (Master Clay) is trained in the tradition of Korean celadon pottery. A selection of works spanning his celebrated career are featured including classic examples of celadon and more recent philosophical departures.
