Korean artist Kwang-Young Chun will present a public Art Talk tonight, Thursday, September 10, at 6:30 pm at the UW Art Museum. The talk is free and open to the public. Chun's Art Talk is a public program in conjunction with his solo exhibition, Kwang-Young Chun: Aggregations, new work, which features a 14 foot tall sculpture and 6 wall pieces not before exhibited in the U.S.

Chun began working on his series of Aggregations in the 1990s. The highly textured pieces are created from small Styrofoam shapes that the artist covers in mulberry paper recycled from Korean books. The paper is hand-tied around the geometric shapes.

Chun will also be presenting a Gallery Walk Through on Friday, September 11 at 10:30 am. The opening reception for the Art Museum's fall exhibitions will also be that evening, beginning at 6 pm. All events are free and open to the public.
