Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art Opening 01/18

BMoCA will host its first exhibition and exhibit opening of 2008 this Friday evening featuring four contemporary artists of Asian decent and influence; Jumi Janairo-Roth (Phillipines), Wang Jing (China), Susan Lee-Chung (Korea), and Hiroshi Watanabe (Japan). This show already hosts a dynamic list of international artists so the artwork itself will sure to be a welcome addition to Boulder's art scene.

You'll find traditional Chinese paintings mixed with American pop culture taking a satirical look at China today, a mixed-media installation with common large-scale labor items adorned with vibrant paints and fabrics, a photography and video installation investigating alter egos, and a Japanese photographer interpreting modern day North Korea in his own dialogue.

With three unique galleries to curate at BMoCA, this show will stimulate the intellect with questions about contemporary Asian society and guide the eyes through the beauty of its aesthetic culture. Show runs January 18th through May4th 2008.
