Kim Sangdon Exhibit Extended to July 31st

Visit our Crenshaw office to see the Kim Sangdon Project Exhibit! Check the comments for hours of operation.

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 elected 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.

Open Monday through Thursday, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm; 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm.
