First Friday Dupont: Virtually featuring Julia Kwon

Saturday, July 4, 2020, 1:00 AM

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. proudly joins the upcoming First Friday Dupont, DC's local art showcase now happening online virtually, on Friday, July 3, featuring DC-based Korean American artist Julia Kwon and her vibrant new textile face coverings in a segment at 6:15 p.m.

Kwon, whose latest project Unapologetically Asian is a series of Korean-style patchwork face masks created in response to coronavirus-related racism affecting Asian Americans, will talk about her key themes, inspirations, creative process, and recent developments for her art.

First Friday Dupont connects the public with modern and contemporary art by national and international artists with a special emphasis on local and up and coming artists. Participants can enter the heart of DC’s active art scene on the first Friday of every month from 5:00-8:00 p.m., with a variety of artists featured throughout. Due to the COVID-19, the program has pivoted to a virtual format since May.
