Byeong Sam Jeon’s Dialogueye II (2013)

Byeong Sam Jeon (전병삼) is giving an artist talk at SAIC  this afternoon. Based on a visit to his website, I was intrigued by Wind From West (2014) and Dialogueye II (2013).

“Don’t be that dude: Handy tips for the male academic” by Tenure, She Wrote.

Should this be NSFW? Calling on Jenny Saville, Egon Schiele, and Lucian Freud!

Sung Hwan Kim (김성혼) at Art Sonje Center (아트선제센터) from 30 August to 30 November via e-flux. According to e-flux, “The title of the exhibition, Life of Always a Mirror, is a play on words in Korean on a Korean elementary school textbook’s title, Joyful Life. This method of education merges music, art, and physical education into a single subject as a didactic gesture in public education that teaches the youth not only knowledge but also the way they should lead a joyful life.”

Along with a salute to my former city, I should share that I plan to attend an event with Jung Rae Bae at the Asian Art Museum here in San Francisco.
