Date & Time
Tickets & Pricing
Gloria Jue-Youn Han makes art that investigates how traditions are altered, adapted, and created anew by diasporic peoples. She draws connections between her experience as a first-generation Korean-Canadian daughter of immigrants and the ways in which traditions survive through tumultuous events in history. In this connection, she uses craft to communicate moments of extreme care, commitment, intimacy, and love.
