From Contemporary at Blue Star:
“Contemporary at Blue Star, San Antonio’s first and longest running contemporary art nonprofit, proudly announces spring 2023 exhibitions, featuring the work of JooYoung Choi, Hiromi Stringer, Juan de Dios Mora and Zeke Peña, and People’s Homes, a collaborative project created by artists Emily Fitzgerald and Molly Sherman.
Through painting, video, sculpture, animation, music, and installation art, multidisciplinary world builder JooYoung Choi documents the interconnecting narratives of a highly structured, expansive, fictional land she has created and titled the Cosmic Womb. In her work, she explores issues of identity, belonging, trauma, and resilience through the sci-fi/fantasy genre, inspired by the media of her childhood and her ongoing research on identity and the media representation of girls, women, intersex, transgender, and non-binary people of color.
This exhibition introduces the Cosmic Womb multiverse and highlights some of its key characters and narratives. In creating a world that explores loss, healing, and growth based upon a connective web of belief and faith in oneself, Choi expresses human resiliency and the strength that can be found through the power of storytelling.
JooYoung Choi: Songs of Resilience from the Tapestry of Faith was originally organized by the Crow Museum of Asian Art of The University of Texas at Dallas and curated by Jacqueline Chao.
