About This Event

The fourth installment of the Downtown Arts District’s Female Curatorial Series. Metamorphosis is curated by Dr. Rangsook Yoon. Featured Artists include Sun K. Kwak, Maya Gelfman, and Kelly Joy Ladd.

This group exhibition highlights the transformation of materials and traditions as an artistic process, while powerfully challenging reductive assumptions about female artists’ visual language. Before opening night, Sun K. Kwak, a Korean-born, New York-based interdisciplinary artist, will create a ‘space drawing’ with black masking tapes on a gallery wall, which will remain on view for the duration of the show. In addition, Israeli-born artist Maya Gelfman will lend her works on paper, as well as her figural sculpture made of leather and yarn, Laocoona and Baubo, which reinterprets these two figures from Greek mythology. The exhibition will also feature the three-dimensional works constructed with cut paper by emerging local artist Kelly Joy Ladd. Metamorphosis: The Place of the Past in the Present brings together outstanding women artists across borders, highlighting their vibrant artistic achievements. For more information, click here.
