Join us at the Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. for the opening of City, Unfamiliar Landscape, a new group exhibition featuring painting and mixed media works that reexamine the evolving, complex urban spaces that are home to an increasing number of people worldwide. Meet featured contemporary Korean artists In Kyung Kwon, Hyun Jin Byun and Bora Jin, and join the reception!


Presenting about 30 works of unique technique and visual expression, these three artists share a common theme of the city as a communally owned space that is also a haven for individual lives. For Kwon, Byun, and Jin, the city is a stage for creativity and an important aspect of the modern human environment, but its value is often overlooked due to its routine, at times mechanical nature. Cities are constantly changing in shape and character though: a place where familiarity and unfamiliarity coexist, especially as seen through art. For more information on the specific artists, visit the KCC event website at or visit the main page at
