Art After Hours: Iridescence Reception with Artist Soo Sunny Park
The Louisiana Art & Science Museum (LASM) announces its opening reception for the Iridescence art exhibition, which will be held on Friday, September 17 from 5:30 PM – 8 PM. The reception will feature a gallery tour by Lexi Adams, LASM Curator, and Dr. Nathan Lord, Assistant Professor in the Department of Entomology at LSU and Director of the Louisiana State Arthropod Museum, as well as an artist’s talk by Soo Sunny Park. Park will be installing her piece Spectrum Specter live in LASM’s Iridescence exhibition from Wednesday, September 15 – Friday, September 17.
“Soo Sunny Park is a mixed-media artist who uses boundary materials such as fencing and glass to transform liminal or transitional spaces: inside and outside, sculpture and drawing, vision and perspective. Additionally, Park harnesses light as an artistic material rather than simply an element of viewing. By doing so, she challenges the boundaries of artistic materials and mediums by inviting the viewer to explore the translucent layers of glass, cast shadows, and reflections which ultimately invite the viewer to wonder about the space in and around her work,” states Curator Lexi Adams.
