About This Event
The title of the exhibition, Tertium Quid, refers to an unidentified third thing which ironically is identified through two distinct or opposite things that are definite or known. Through their creative practice, these three artists explore the concept of a surface itself as an indicator, container, or the essence of something that exists in between, further suggesting surface as a visibly transparent yet ambiguous entity. This concept functions physically and conceptually as a vehicle to manifest contrasting notions or dualities such as abstract and figurative, interior and exterior, and existence and non-existence—thereby investigating the tertium quid that are neither one nor the other.
The virtual guided tour, offering an inside look at each artist's creative themes, processes, and inspirations, will release on Friday, August 6 at 6p.m. on the KCCDC YouTube and Instagram channels (@KoreaCultureDC).
Tertium Quid will remain on view August 6 through September 27, 2021 (walk-in hours are 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., excluding 12 - 1 p.m., Monday - Friday).
