LAUNCH LA, in partnership with the Korean Cultural Center, presents “Intersection,” a group exhibition running from Friday, Aug. 17, through Thursday, Aug. 30, at KCCLA.
The exhibition brings together artists from throughout Southern California who explore intersections in culture, society and history. Their works represent converging moments that shape their identities, work and daily lives.
“As a cultural hub to promote ceaseless endeavors of artists in our communities, our center presents this wonderful exhibition to help people to appreciate diverse artistic expressions created by [Southern California] artists,” KCCLA Director Nak Jung Kim said. “My hope is that this event brings us together to deeply appreciate cultural diversity in Southern California.”
Emily Gonzalez-Jarrett, artist and museum liaison at Honor Fraser, Los Angeles, narrowed the field of artists who submitted works from 200 to 23. The artists represented are Holly Boruck, Sarah Stone, Margaret Hyde, Dwora Fried, Steven Hampton, Jorg Dubin, Kuniko Ruch, Michael Chomick, Preston Craig, Kim Garcia, Miriam Kim, Lindsey Warren, Karen Clark, Laura Fisher, Lynne McDaniel, Shanna Chang Lim, Christopher Chinn, Megan Frances, David Keeth, Michele Jaquis, Siru Wen and John Junghun Lee.
Forty-four artworks are featured in the exhibit. Four of the artists will be selected by gallerist and executive director James Panozzo to exhibit at the LAUNCH LA Gallery at 170 S. La Brea Ave.
