IN-HYUNG KIM: The Paris Years

Là, tout n’est qu’ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté.

Art Projects International is pleased to announce In-Hyung Kim: The Paris Years from January 28 to February 27, 2016. The exhibition features selected works from the artist’s years in Paris and includes paintings and works on paper. In-Hyung Kim moved to Paris in 1978 at the age of 20. She graduated from L’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts and lived and worked in Paris as an artist for nearly 30 years before returning to Seoul, where she now lives and works.

The paintings in The Paris Years range from boldly and sensitively rendered, expressionistic, multi-media works on paper to more atmospheric works on canvas. The paintings on canvas read as nocturnes, with floral elements appearing out of darknesses red, black or green. The works suggest the melancholic romanticism of Baudelaire but introduce an aesthetic wholly derived from In-Hyung Kim’s uncompromising sensibility. Her carefully cultivated personal aesthetic and gifts for painting are readily apparent; in Untitled #27 of 1994, a freely brushed, scumbled, white, tree-like form could be a baobab in space or the last mushroom cloud. From afar, an untitled work of 2000 appears as slashes of orange crimson against black—up close it is a gorgeous representation of untethered blooms in a night garden.

Cui Fei: The Journey of Transformation at the West 10th Window Project

Time Equities Inc. Art-in-Buildings is pleased to announce the newest exhibition at the West 10th Window: Cui Fei, The Journey of Transformation.

Cui Fei’s The Journey of Transformation historicizes the natural world, presenting found pieces of driftwood as though they are artifacts from an archaeological dig displayed in a museum vitrine. By presenting objects that are beaten down, weathered, and discarded as elevated symbols of cultural heritage, Cui reveals a disconnect between the value we place on material objects and the value we place on our environment. Through her meticulous arrangement of the driftwood, Cui elevates the natural to the same level of preciousness assigned to the luxury items displayed in high-end boutique windows up the street. In this context, Cui imbues these otherwise overlooked pieces of driftwood with cultural importance and value.

More than referencing a museum vitrine, Cui’s display organizes the driftwood into a concise format, providing structure to objects that float freely in the natural world – ‘drifting’ implies an uncontrolled movement driven by chance and destiny. Cui explains that while in the West there is an attempt to control the environment through scientific understanding, ancient Chinese philosophies on nature recognize humanity as a part of the natural world, as opposed to a force able to control it. The driftwood mimics this philosophy as a representation of what can or cannot be controlled, while Cui’s precise arrangement realizes the Western desire to instill order onto nature.

Cui Fei was born in Jinan, China. She received her MFA in painting at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and received her BFA degree from the China Academy of Fine Arts. Cui’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues such as the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, NY; Princeton University Art Museum, Princeton, NJ; Museum of Chinese in American, NY; Queens Museum of Art, Queens, NY; Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT; Wave Hill, Bronx, NY; Bronx Museum of Arts; Kunstgewerbe Museum, Dresden, Germany; Jeju Museum of Art, Korea, Jeju, Korea, Rietberg Museum Zurich, Switzerland; Warehouse Gallery at Syracuse University, among others.

She is a recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, the Artist’s Fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Art, Emerging Artist Fellowship from Socrates Sculpture Park, SIP fellowship from the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, and the Artist-in-residence Workspace grant from The Center for Book Arts.

Special thanks to Mansheng Wang and Chloe Wang for contributing the driftwood collected at Dobbs Ferry.

Transnational Lives in Motion: The Art of Laura Kina and Việt Lê – The Kellogg University Art Gallery, California State Polytechnic University Pomona

The Weglyn Endowed Chair for Multicultural Studies and the Kellogg University Art
Gallery are proud to sponsor the exhibitions of Laura Kina and Việt Le. Their artworks
highlight the nuanced nature of Transnational Lives in Motion among Asian American
and Pacific Islander communities. Despite Asian Americans’ contributions to the U.S. for
over three centuries, the perceptions of these communities are relegated to thinking of
them as ‘perpetual foreigners’ or consigned to model minority stereotypes. The shifting
global standing of Asian countries has changed the discourse to take into account that
Asian Americans are neither here nor there, but everywhere, as they actively partake in
transnational lives. Policies, wars, employment, and family reunifications have led to the
movement of Asian lives across the globe, transcending nations, and blurring global
boundaries as their lives are in motion. Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders today are
able to stay connected to their homeland, and others are reconstructing their multiple
identities in a nation that tries to contain them. To complicate the Asian American
experience is to understand that these communities are complex and diverse, which
adds to the continued challenges in the way we think about the layered identities and
communities of Asian American and Pacific Islander peoples. Transnational Lives in
Motion: The Art of Laura Kina and Việt Lê examines the ways in which Asian American
transnationals construct and reconstruct the fabric of their identities based on their
location, space and time. From mixed-race identities with global connections, to
communities who seek refuge in the U.S. from the legacies of wars, this exhibit
highlights a few issues, which impact immigrant, refugee, and multi-racial ethnic
communities living transnational lives.

Laura Kina’s exhibition, named after her latest series, Uchinanchu, and Việt Lê’s trilogy
lovebang! will be exhibited simultaneously, and for the first time, for each artist.
Uchinanchu combines Asian and Pacific Islander pop-culture textiles, fabrics and T-shirts,
formulated into colorful, large-scale tapestries, with traditional painting motifs
addressing how the assimilation of multiple cultures fold meticulously into one personal,
yet collective, journey. Việt Lê’s lovebang! Trilogy Premiere includes video installations
lovebang!, eclipse, and the world premiere of heARTbreak! — each, together, transect
the topics of Asian pop-culture, hip-hop, sex, homo-eroticism and being transgender,
with struggle and war, nostalgia and heartbreak.

The Queens Museum is pleased to announce the second iteration of the Queens Museum-Jerome Foundation Fellowship Program for Emerging Artists in New York City. The program awards three visual artists a grant of 20,000 USD each, professional development consultations and close mentorship from Queens Museum staff, including Director of Exhibitions/Curator Hitomi Iwasaki, all aimed at the realization of an artist’s project. The fellowship begins in March 2016 and culminates in an exhibition at the Museum in March 2017. Works resulting from the 2014–15 fellowships are currently on view in Catalyst: New Projects by Meredith James, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Casey Tang through February 28, 2016.

Fellowship eligibility is limited to emerging visual artists living in the five boroughs of New York City. The Queens Museum defines an emerging artist as one who is at the dawn of their public career. The eligible artist has completed his or her studies, but has not had solo exhibitions at established commercial galleries or institutions or received major grants. The category also includes artists who are well beyond their studies, and may have participated in group exhibitions but have not received extensive press or market recognition. These artists may have exhibited their work in other countries on a limited basis, but have not had major exhibition opportunities in the US or in New York in particular.

A three-member jury will review applications and make final selections. The jury will consist of Queens Museum Director of Exhibitions and two other arts professionals, one of whom will be based outside of New York City.
