Light of the East—The Beauty of Movement in Silence

PSA from the College of East Asian Studies:

Prominent Korean digital artists Youngho Kim and Jisong Lee examine
the “beauty of movement in silence” through photography and video in
their first exhibition outside Korea. Both artists build on their long
careers in fashion and commercial work to create works that examine
the core principals hiding behind what we see, and provide an opening
to re-explore, in a contemporary light, the topic of whether the world
that we are living in is a dream.

Date: Wednesday, February 3rd – Sunday, May 22nd
Time: 12:00 PM- 4:00 PM
Place: College of East Asian Studies Gallery
