Exhibitions Ending Soon at Korea Society and Dai Ichi Arts

Janice Chung, Union Street Plaza, 2022

Koreatown LA/NY
Photo Series by Emanuel Hahn/Janice Chung
Korea Society
Closes Thursday, August 17

Two young Korean-American photographers present a series of images, a poignant portrait of a community and its habitants from the areas considered to be "Koreatown"—one in Los Angeles, one in New York. Emanuel Hahn and Janice Chung document the lives and stories in two of the most diverse neighborhoods in America, as the communities and neighborhoods themselves continue to evolve and change. It is a celebration of the Korean immigrants and their experiences, and the artists ask the viewer to reconsider the common notions of what it means to be from "here."

The Korea Society Gallery is open only by appointment. The appointment must be made at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled visit. To make an appointment, please contact [email protected].
