Join us on Saturday, April 22 to meet the artist, Jiha Moon, and hear about “Jiha Moon/ Double Welcome” published by the Halsey Institute. The Catalogue Raisonné provides a comprehensive look at Moon’s exhibition currently on view at Auburn University. Books will be available for purchase!!
This is what the Halsey Institute says about Moon’s exhibition:
The Halsey Institute is pleased to present an exhibition featuring new works by multi-media artist Jiha Moon (Korean, Born 1973). Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Moon harvests cultural elements native to Korea, Japan, and China and then unites them with Western elements to investigate the multi-faceted nature of our current global identity as influenced by popular culture, technology, racial perceptions, and folklore. Featuring over fifty works, Moon blurs the lines between Western and Eastern identified iconography such as the characters from the online game Angry Birds© and smart phone Emojis which float alongside Asian tigers and Indian gods, in compositions that appear both familiar and foreign simultaneously.
