InKas Biennial Show 2016


As mentioned in my previous post, I am extremely excited to be able to exhibit here in Seoul at the InKas Biennial Show at Sangmyung University. This was my first exhibit here in Seoul and I had no idea what to expect. Thankfully my friend was able to attend the opening with me, and together, we had a great time.

The show began with a quick viewing, and then followed by some musical performances and speeches from InKas and the University. Afterwards, there were refreshments and further viewing. It was really nice to see how many people came out for the show's opening. It was a variety of people, from artists, to guests, to students of the university (possibly just there to poach the free food, but whatever.)
One great thing about this exhibit is that it was a mixed curation of Korean adoptees from all over the world, as well as local Korean artists whom we had a small Q&A with at the end of the opening. It was really interesting hearing their points of views and the advice they gave to us as artists. I will remember their words for a long time.
Another neat thing was that InKas used the images to create memorabilia which is available at the show. You can find my piece on mugs and book marks. The show is up from November 2-8, and I encourage anyone in the area to come stop by. Also, if you are unable to attend, you can read a review of my work by Yonhap News here. I was really fortunate to be interviewed prior to the exhibition to talk about my work and my experience moving to Seoul.

Say What?
