June 8 – September 30, 2022

Opening: Wednesday, June 8, 6 – 8 PM

The Sylvia Wald & Po Kim Gallery

417 Lafayette Street, 2nd Floor, NYC

Jung Hee Choi will discuss her work and process with the legendary artist La Monte Young and Dia curator Megan Witko, who has worked closely with both Choi and Young on all of their Dia projects since 2015.

For over twenty years, Choi has studied and collaborated with La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela on many art, music and life studies projects. Choi states, “This conversation will provide insight into our unique and life-long collaboration, which is a profound means of continuing our art practice into the future beyond the lifetime of the artist.”

The talk will contextualize Choi’s sound work and music practice, providing an in-depth focus on her long series of Environmental Compositions, presented with various media including video, evolving light-point patterns, drawings, incense, performance and sound, invoking the concept of Manifest Unmanifest.

This conversation is organized in conjunction with Jung Hee Choi’s current exhibition Manifest, Unmanifest XII, on view at SWPK through September 30, 2022.
