Artist Talk: Jung Hee Choi with Jay Sanders
“...while watching Ms. Choi’s hallucinatory screen, you may find yourself in an altered state of consciousness, on the verge of some ineffable, transcendental revelation.” - The New York Times.

Jung Hee Choi’s solo exhibition Black: Trans: Maya: Light at the Korea Society focuses on her series of light point drawings and graphite drawings. Utilizing both traditional and experimental techniques, Choi presents mesmerizing images that capture and transfigure light.

In this Artist Talk, Choi will be joined by Jay Sanders, Executive Director and Chief Curator of Artists Space.
