Florida State University’s Facility for Arts Research and Museum of Fine Arts is excited to welcome Jiha Moon for an opening reception on February 17th at 5pm in MoFA’s galleries and a presentation of her work at 6pm in room 249. This event will be free, open to the public, and in-person, with the option to view it remotely.
A show of her ceramic work, Jiha Moon: Chasing Spirits, will be on view at the Museum of Fine Arts from January 13th until March 19th.
Jiha Moon is from DaeGu, Korea, and lives and works in Atlanta, GA. She received her MFA from the University of Iowa, Iowa City. Moon’s gestural paintings, mixed media, ceramic sculpture, and installation explore fluid identities and the global movement of people and their cultures. She says, “I am a cartographer of cultures and an icon maker in my lucid worlds.” She is taking cues from wide ranges of history of Eastern and Western art, colors and designs from popular culture, Korean temple paintings and folk art, internet emoticons and icons, fruit stickers and labels of products from all over the place. She often teases and changes these lexicons so that they are hard to identify yet familiar.
THIS PRESENTATION AND EXHIBITION IS FUNDED, IN PART, BY A GRANT FROM SOUTH ARTS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS AND THE FLORIDA DIVISION OF CULTURAL AFFAIRS.
