The Dream of the Audience

The Dream of the Audience is a retrospective exhibition of the works of Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, an influential but little known Korean-American artist who worked in media ranging from performance, film and video to mail art and artist’s books. An ongoing exploration of themes born out of personal experience-primarily those of geographic exile and cultural and linguistic displacement-Cha’s complex work is distinguished by multiple cultural references and languages, including Korean, French and English.

The exhibition will feature extensive documentation of Cha’s performances, video and film installations, sculpture, artist’s books, works on paper and documentation relating to the unfinished film White Dust from Mongolia, which Cha was working on at the time of her murder in New York in 1982 at the age of 31.
