"Looking North" Installation Array Opening Reception
Looking North is a collaborative multimedia exhibition by Danny Kim (MFAEDA '18) and Peter Lisignoli (MFAEDA '13) examining the landscapes of the demilitarized zone (DMZ) at the border of North and South Korea.
As an outsider, this was Lisignoli's second visit to the DMZ area, the experience left him with a feeling of displacement. The serene landscapes of the 38th parallel were strangely memorialized with museums, gift shops, and amusement park.
Kim, a native Seoul-born Korean citizen who served in the military was struck by the oddity of the DMZ theme park where tourists looked longingly though the telescopes across the Imjin river, fascinated by the neighboring country, after more than six decades of separation.
Opening reception will take place in Bay 11 on the second floor of Smith Warehouse from 4:00pm-6:00pm. Light refreshments served. Free and open to the public.
