Virtual | Artist Talk with Andrea Chung

November 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Artwork by Andrea Chung
10am PT / 11am MT / 12pm CT / 1pm ET

Please join us for a virtual artist talk with Andrea Chung, whose exhibition, We Was Girls Together, was recently presented at Tyler Park Presents in San Diego.

We Was Girls Together, inspired by Toni Morrison’s book Sula, is a series of large-scale collages that celebrates the relationships of black women in all their complexities and displays Chung’s gratitude for them. As Chung says, “Our sisterhood, our love for one another, is not always visible to the unfamiliar, nor should it always be.” Click here to read more about the exhibition.

Chung’s work has recently been featured in Prospect 4 (New Orleans) and the Jamaican Biennale (Kingston, Jamaica), as well as the Chinese American Museum and California African American Museum in Los Angeles, and the San Diego Art Institute. In 2017, her first solo museum exhibition took place at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, You broke the ocean in half to be here. She has participated in national and international residencies, including Headlands Center for the Arts and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Her work has been written about in the Artfile Magazine, Artnet, and Los Angeles Times, as well as a number of academic essays looking at the subject of colonialism and slavery in the Caribbean.
