Oakland, CA—November 30, 2017
In-Between Places: Korean-American Artists in the Bay Area, currently on exhibit at the Mills College Art Museum, was recently featured on KQED Arts. The exhibit includes art by eight local Korean-American artists, ranging in age from their 20s to their 70s, and explores how Korean-Americans feel about their dual identities. Nicholas Oh told KQED Arts that he specifically created a piece for the exhibit that “is about how Asian-Americans are perceived and generally assumed to be foreigners. My work aims to fight some of these generalizations by embracing stereotypes.”
The exhibit was curated by Linda Inson Choy, a contemporary Korean art specialist, with help from Hyonjeong Kim Han, associate curator of Korean art at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. It runs through December 10 and is free and open to the public.
