We are so excited to announce that Young Sook Park will be featured in an upcoming exhibit entitled LUNAR ATTRACTION at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA. The exhibit opens on October 15th, an runs through September 2017. Below is a bit more from the curators on the nature of the exhibition.
As Earth’s closest celestial body and only natural satellite, the moon has engaged our curiosity and imagination over millennia and across cultures. Contemporary artists use the moon as both a source of inspiration and investigation. Lunar Attraction features artworks and interactives that explore our longstanding fascination and connection with the moon, ranging from the persistent myths about the psychological effects of a full moon to the gravitational pull that controls Earth’s tides to the 21st-century international race to build a base on the moon.
The East India Marine Associates and members of the Art & Nature Committee of the Peabody Essex Museum provided support for this exhibition.
