Join us for the opening of Damageable Perfection, a special solo exhibition of intricate installation works by 2018 Artist of the Year Euyoung Hong that examines the intersection of urban spaces and politics in modern society.


Euyoung Hong’s work explores the complex social relationships that emerge between urban spaces, objects, and politics. She is particularly interested in how familiar concepts are transformed by capitalist urbanization, such as changing ideas of urban land use, the politics of space, and social vs. spatial production and transformation. By looking at urbanization in the Republic of Korea, Hong focuses on how our understanding of everyday objects and ideas has evolved over time in terms of the politics of space. This transformation is especially evident in the essential ways that society participates in, conceives, and constructs a capitalist urban system.

The Artist of the Year recognition, presented to a single artist whose work is featured at the Korean Cultural Center, spotlights outstanding creators of the highest class. Selected from among those who applied to the center’s Open Call for Artists, this notable artist is honored with a special solo exhibition. The Open Call program celebrates its third anniversary in 2018 and aims to introduce unique Korean and Korea-inspired artists to mainstream art in the United States.

Admission to the opening reception and talk by the artist on Friday, November 9 at 6:00 p.m. is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Damageable Perfection will remain on view during regular hours through November 30, 2018.
