The Korean Cultural Center Los Angeles (KCCLA), in partnership with LAUNCH LA, proudly presents an open-call exhibition, “Contemplating Boundaries,” which will open with a reception at the Korean Cultural Center Art Gallery (located at 5505 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90036) from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 27, 2023.

Jurors TeaYoun Kim-Kassor and Mika Cho reviewed over 400 images from over 100 artists in a blind jurying process. Their careful selection resulted in 40 art pieces created by 28 artists that authentically and compellingly echo contemporary life while interconnected.

Boundaries exist in all cultures-often as social constructs serving to regulate our actions, norms, taboos, and space. They may be codified laws, common societal traditions, or even self-imposed rules. “Contemplating Boundaries” brings together artists from across Southern California whose practices contemplate and reflect barriers, labels, and limits- whatever their origin or purpose. These artists and their works- define our times, providing an authentic lens to view contemporary culture.

The exhibition is open to the public, and the show will run until August 18th, 2023.
