The Kim Sangdon Project Opening Reception

Join us on Thursday May 25th, 2017 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm for the opening reception of "The Kim Sangdon Project: An 8-Channel Video Installation" at the Korean Resource Center 민족학교 (KRC) in Los Angeles' Koreatown (900 Crenshaw Blvd., Los Angeles, CA).

This 8-Channel video installation is an essay film deconstructed from an autobiographical archive of Kim Sangdon created by Duke Choi. The installation allows public access to uproot a suppressed narrative of social justice spanning from his early years between 1919 and until his death in 1986. Kim Sangdon is known as the first voted Seoul Mayor after the 4.19.60 April Revolution and was jailed during the 5.16.61 coup d'état. Through self-exile, he struggled to restore democracy in South Korea and later organized protests throughout American cities. This exhibit is curated by the Korean Resource Center, a nonprofit that seeks to empower low-income, immigrants, and people of color communities.

This event is free to the public & snacks and refreshments will be served.
