Curated by Cynthia Penna
Gallery Director Mika Cho
The exhibition “REPLICATION,” the first KINETIC Art exhibition at California State University, Los Angeles’ Ronald H. Silverman Fine Arts Gallery, displays the work of the Korean American artist David B. Jang. The exhibition shares with students and general public the iconographically profound and highly creative facets of Jang’s art that addresses the significant issue of sustainability and global environmentalism. A few critics have seen Jang’s work as a warning to us all regarding the urgency to preserve and sustain the health of this planet for future generations. Jang’s Kinetic artwork, created with recycled and found objects, addresses conservation.
This exhibition presents some of Jang’s recent work, created during the COVID Pandemic (2020-2021), including Constructive Metabolic Rate; Analogue lmpulse; Elucidate; Force Bearing; Nature Position; Substantial; Compulsive Reproduction; My Beautiful Clouds. To ensure a continuum of his works the Gallery is also displaying a few earlier pieces by Mr. Jang, dating from 2014 to 2019. Among these earlier pieces are: Negative Occurrence; Black Lewdness; Prevaricate Extended; Deflecting Production and more.
