Hyun Jung Kim
BLIND IN ART: ONE
Thursday, November 16, 2017 (Evening)
EVENT TYPE: Art Exhibition Reception
Hyun Jung Kim brings us a unique exhibition expressing her work Blind in Art: One. Her work includes representations of the word Love, as well as excerpts from Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and Bob Dylan’s “Blowing in the Wind,” using the dots and codes series of Braille. The panels of King’s speech are done in precious objects, pearls, gold leaf, and thread dipped in wine to symbolize King’s sacrifice. Other panels are also done in pearls and gold leaf.
Her work also includes gold crowns, which will be on display during the opening only. Guests will be encouraged to wear the crowns, one of which has “I Have a Dream” in braille on it. The artist has made the crown to denote equal rights and freedom.
Hyun Jung is an internationally known artist who received two MFA’s, one at Seoul National University and the other at Montclair State University, where she won the prestigious “Dean’s Artist/Scholar Graduate Award” of the College of Arts.
The exhibition opens on November 8, 2017, and will be on display until February 6, 2018.
PRICE: This event is free, but registration is required.
