PRESENTATION: SCREAMING YELLOW
On view Friday, November 5
– Sunday, November 7, 2021
Rey Jeong is a social practice artist, focusing on the intersection of gender and race as a member of the diaspora.
Screaming Yellow is a social sculpture resembling a Korean election campaign-style truck, outfitted with a large LCD screen and a stage constructed on the flatbed. The screen on the pickup truck will play a series of films called Cascade Voices. The topics of public discourse in the films include being part of a marginalized group, generational and technological divides, and cultural denial within immigrant families.
Jeong received the University of Michigan Jean Paul Slusser MFA Thesis Award-honorable mention-at the Stamps School of Art and Design, and now teaches as a professor of practice and IDEA Generator at Alfred University, NY.
