Yellow Womanhood, Opens November 22nd

Julia Kwon creates ruptures within traditional Korean textile to comment on gender and ethnicity. The artist draws inspiration from Korean patchwork object-wrapping cloth called bojagi, which was historically a creative outlet for women who had limited contact with the outside world. Kwon creates textile works in the format of bojagi to explore notions of tradition, craft, and feminized labor. Through disrupting the Korean textiles and treating the human-scale figures like objects, she not only expresses the embodied experience of objectification, tokenism, and whitewashing, but also challenges preexisting notions of what it means to be Korean and feminine. Kwon’s work is a celebration of her cultural background as well as a commentary on the complexities of constructing identity within the contemporary context of globalism, cultural hybridity, and intersectionality.

Yellow Womanhood runs from November 22nd through December in The Honfleur Gallery. At 1241 Good Hope Rd SE, Washington DC 20020. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday by appointment.

Through the Looking Glass, Urban Perspectives” exhibit has been extended to Wednesday April 25, 2018. Gallery hours are Wednesday – Saturday from 12-7PM and by appointment.

They’re certainly attention-grabbers: Giant hippos drifting through turquoise skies, gleaming musical instruments emerging from a human heart. The otherworldly figures — subjects of large-scale oil paintings by artist Jordan Kasey and on view through Friday at Anacostia’s Honfleur Gallery — burst with color and whimsy. They also represent a milestone for Kasey, a 2007 Maryland Institute College of Art grad: her first solo show in Washington. Read the rest of this entry »

 ‘Wavelengths’: Chock-full of theory, yet ethereal

By Mark Jenkins, Published: June 16

The work of four female artists who decided to hang around together, “Wavelengths’’ is a quartet of site-specific installations that are suspended in midair. The pieces make fruitful use of the two-level space at Anacostia’s Honfleur Gallery , especially the larger room on the first floor. The artists’ individual statements are laden with theory, but their art is agreeably airy. Read the rest of this entry »
