True and False

True and False

Korean Cultural Center, Washington, D.C.,NW, US

December 4 – December 26, 2020

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. proudly presents True and False, a new group exhibition showcasing vibrant and diverse multimedia installation works by three contemporary Korean artists who explore the blurring of truth in modern society, opening Friday, March 6 with in-person introductions by the artists. Tae Eun Kim, Su Hyun Nam, and Ahree Song each place their work in the context of today’s fast-paced, complex world where clear distinctions between fiction and reality are increasingly lacking. Once absolute notions such as true and false or possible and impossible have become ever more obscure as advanced technology continues to overcome humanity’s perceived limitations and our very ability to comprehend it.

 

By embracing the rapid evolution of science and the digital frontier as a new part of our natural world, Kim, Nam, and Song embody the boundary between reality and fiction through their art, which includes digital multimedia, distortion techniques, installations, and sculpture. This exhibition aims to have audiences reflect on the underlying coexistence of nature and humanity, and to reconsider common expectations and understandings of society.
