Asian Identity: three contemporary Artists reflect on adaptation in an intercultural dialogue
The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. proudly presents its final exhibition of 2018, Asian Identity, an intercultural group show featuring photographic, video, sculpture, and mixed media works by artists Yuni Kim Lang, Khánh H. Lê, and Sarawut Chutiwongpeti. Each artist’s evocative and deeply personal work expresses their unique identity as Asian, balancing formative experiences adapting to new environments with a desire to preserve one’s cultural heritage.
These three artists, of Korean, Vietnamese, and Thai heritage respectively, believe that investigating one’s cultural roots is vital to understanding oneself, especially in an era where myriad world cultures coexist and globalization further blurs traditional lines of separation. Across widely varying media and modes of expression, they examine fundamental issues of identity and discuss through art their unique cultural states of being. Collectively, this exhibition aims to introduce the creative potential of contemporary artists of Asian heritage in the United States at a time when global interest in Asia on the rise. This exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Royal Thai Embassy in the United States.
