Gallery Korea of the Korean Cultural Center New York (KCCNY) is pleased to present the last ‘Call for Artists 2016’ exhibition Unsettled on view at 460 Park Avenue, 6th floor from November 16th to December 16th, 2016. An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, November 16th from 6pm to 8pm.
Juried by professionals in the New York art scene and selected by the Korean Cultural Center New York for the official ‘Call for Artists 2016’ exhibition, Unsettled brings together eleven creative artists: Eun Kyoung An, Ji Sun Beak, Yunhee Huh, Ginny Huo, Jee Hyun Hwang, Lynn S. Kim, Won Kim, Pablo Lecroisey Lara, Jesús Jiménez Lopéz, Joo Yeon Judy Yang and claRa apaRicio Yoldi with their captive contemporary pieces across various platforms including painting, drawing, collage-making, photography, installation, and video works.
Unsettled reveals multilateral aspects of unstable and precarious states in the artists’ lives. The works in the exhibition examine the process of introspection of the unstable state in various ways, reflecting on insecure social systems and expressing these changeable, even volatile situations in their own ways. Together, the artists are allowing the audience to get a glimpse of how the seemingly negative concept of ‘unsettlement’ can be elevated and beautified through art.
