Korea Arts Foundation of America (KAFA) & Korean Cultural Center, Los Angeles (KCCLA) proudly present the "The 17th Korea Arts Foundation of America Award Recipient Exhibition: Club Homo Hill," which will take place from November 5th to November 19th, 2021 at the Korean Cultural Center Art Gallery, located at 5505 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90036.
Club Homo Hill is the hottest new queer utopian space birthed from the ruptures of migration, yearning, and pain that divide us from our lineage, and from the invalidations of our existence by our nations and families. Club Homo Hill embraces its mediated, complex, hybrid, and transformational nature to offer myriad bodies transitioning, spilling, breaking apart, coming together, metamorphosing. Its multiple facades invite you to straddle the divide between cultures, to inhabit a space of indeterminacy. Its perforations invite you to discharge yourself from certain restrictions and interdictions to materialize new bodies, new identities, ways of belonging and being. Club Homo Hill is the gathering of a speculative collectivity centered around multiplicity, contradictions, and temporal and spatial entanglements through and beyond ideas of bodies, places, and nations. A collective that cannot be contained or policed.
To provide a safe environment for visitors and staff, KCCLA has implemented new health and safety protocols and procedures under the guidelines provided by the L.A. County Department of Public Health. For the safety of all, KCCLA has adhered to social distancing by limiting the number of people entering each viewing hour through an online reservation system and pre-safety procedures such as taking temperature and kindly asking guests to put on face masks during their visit.
The exhibition is open to the public and the show will run until November 19th, 2021.
