A LAUNCH LA OPEN CALL GROUP EXHIBITION
In partnership with The Korean Cultural Center, Los Angeles

A reflection may be an image mirrored back to the observer or serious thought and consideration. In the case of this exhibition, it’s both. “Reflection” brings together artists from across Southern California whose practices contemplate and reflect our times. Through their work, they provide an authentic lens to view contemporary culture.
LAUNCH LA, in partnership with The Korean Cultural Center, invites all Southern California visual artists to submit work for a juried exhibition and competition at The Korean Cultural Center, 5505 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, August 6 to August 27, 2021.
