On Sunday, September 25, 2022, PRJCTLA hosts a closing and book signing in conjunction with its two exhibitions – a solo show by Los Angeles-based artist Jae Hwa Yoo, and Los Angeles-based photographer Grant Mudford. Remember to check with the gallery for up-to-date covid protocols and guidelines – (proof of vaccination and masks MAY be required once again).

This is the gallery’s first solo exhibition with Jae Hwa Yoo, The artist’s practice reveals a long standing focus and commitment to a practice of mark making reminiscent of the renowned Korean Abstractionist movement “Dansaekhwa,”and she is closely associated with that group. Educated in Korea during the late 60’s, she was identified with and knew most of the artists from the “Dansaekhwa” movement, such as Ha Chonghyun, Eun Hyong-Keun and preeminently Park Seo Bo, the acknowledged godfather of that group and the artist Yoo regards as probably her most important influence.

Unfortunately, Yoo emerged during a time when there was very little focus on female artists in Korea. She then moved to Los Angeles where she experienced other difficulties as an immigrant merging into a new scene. What however is most important is the artwork itself and this is where Yoo excels most.

Also opening…Grant Mudford’s first solo exhibition. Over the last few decades Mudford has been documenting the artists represented by the renown LA gallerist Rosamund Felsen in a unique look into her career as a dealer. The exhibition features a personal look into the artist’s practice through a series of over 80 color photographs of the artists in their studios. These unique images capture artists amongst their own work giving the viewer an inside look into their private domain; their studios where magic happens. There will be large-scale black & white photographic portraits from 1989 featuring such artists as Chris Burden, Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy amongst others.
