“STILL PRESENT PASTS” ARTISTS’ TALK & RECEPTION

Part of:
The (Unending) Korean War
academic Conference, films, art exhibition

Still Present Pasts: Korean Americans and the Forgotten War is a multi-media exhibit of installation and performance art, documentary film and archival photographs, and oral histories that explores memories and legacies of the Korean War. Embodying life stories of ordinary Korean Americans who experienced the war, the exhibit is a public space of remembering that breaks the silence about a tragic episode in U.S. and Korean history. The Korean War took the lives of 3 million Korean civilians and 1.2 million combatants, ushered in the Cold War era, and remains stalemated in an armistice agreement nearly six decades since its signing – yet most Americans remember it only as the “forgotten war.” (In addition to the gallery talk artists, NYU installation includes works by Injoo Whang, Ji-Young Yoo, Yong Soon Min, and Grace M. Cho; and is sponsored by A/P/A Institute and Department of East Asian Studies at NYU, Third World Newsreel, and Nodutdol for Korean Community Development with support from New York Council for the Humanities.)
