March 21 - April 25, 2010
Opening Reception - Sunday, March 21, 2-4pm
Angels Gate Cultural Center is pleased to present Planning a Year, a solo exhibition celebrating the culmination of a major project by Sojung Kwon, one of the fifty artists in the Center's Studio Artist Prorgam. Planning a Year is a two year time-based performance/documentation project in two parts, "Plans" and "Actions". In this exhibition, the documentation from the daily "Actions" that took place on Mondays and Sundays will be presented as an extension of the project.
The first part of this project, "Plans" took place from March 1st 2008 to February 28th 2009. During that time, the artist planned every day the "Action" she was to perform on the corresponding date the following year. She then wrote an e-mail of the plan to selection of "witnesses": 365 people or organizations, whose addresses she chose at random from her E-mail inbox.
The second part, "Actions", took place from March 1st, 2009 to February 28th, 2010. Every day Sojung performed the action described during the corresponding day from "Plans". All of "Actions" were documented in a variety of formats including video, sound, still images and text, and will be on view during the exhibition.
More information and "Action" documentations can be seen on the project website:
