Meeting Point

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. proudly presents Meeting Point, a new exhibition of contemporary works by nine Korean and American multicultural artists that strives to shift viewers’ established perspectives and explore the diverse relationships between artist, audience, and exhibition space. A free, public opening reception and introduction to the artist will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 6:00 p.m.

Amanda Lechner, Jong Oh, Bohyun Yoon, Jon Rajkovich, Seung Ah Lee, Sun Choi, WonJung Choi, JiPil Jung, and Benjamin Stout conceived of this unique exhibition as a collaborative mind-map that weaves together topics of race, culture, gender, history, politics and the nature of everyday life into a single, multiform art exhibition. 

By connecting all these aspects that both challenge and define society – by finding their various meeting point – the artists seek to build relationships between the audience, artist, and space. 

Meeting Point employs materials as diverse as its themes, including visual, installation, mirrors, sculpture, metalworking, glasswork, and video art. Despite the novelty of the materials and diverse experiences presented to viewers, the artist composed the exhibition not to express an original statement, but to elicit understanding of how society is continually changing around and within us. 

Admission to the opening reception on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 6:00 p.m. is free, but an RSVP is required (below). This exhibition will remain on view through Nov. 30 (no RSVP required during regular hours: M-F, 9 am-noon & 1:30-5:30 pm).
