Jiha Moon: Stars Down to Earth
Wed, Sept 5th, 5:30pm: Artist Talk & Exhibition Reception
Join artist Jiha Moon for a walk-through of her current exhibition at the James Gallery, followed by a reception. In large- and small-scale paintings, drawings, and prints, Moon shares bits of culturally specific popular imagery amidst fields of exuberant abstraction. Often executed with unconventional materials including collages of embroidery, silk, and mylar, or traditional handmade Mulberry paper, her investigation of line is fluid and complex.
Cultural and Racial Legibility in Contemporary Abstraction
Thu, Sept 20th, 6:30pm: Panel
How are artists today addressing visual constructions of culture and race in ways that re-work the boundaries of abstraction, text, and figuration? What role in particular does the integration of abstraction with images from popular culture play in this process, and how does recognition, or on the other hand, misunderstanding of cultural icons operate in the current flow of information across the globe? Join the curator of the James Gallery, Katherine Carl, and a group of internationally distinguished artists, Lisa Corinne Davis, Hunter College, Jiha Moon and Odili Donald Odita, Tyler School of Art, as they consider these intriguing questions in relation to their own work and to that of others.
