See the Sound

June 30, 2006

SVA and the SVA Korean Alumni Association present “Sóu-Lí/Sound,” an exhibition of

works by 48 South Korean artists who graduated from the College. Curated by sculptor, installation artist and alumnus Jong

Yuen Ahn (MFA 1992 Fine Arts), the exhibition focuses on three ranges of sound: high frequency, human range and low

frequency. According to Ahn, whose work taps the unique properties of light and water to explore culture and memory, “All

things in the world have their own sound. Higher frequency sound emanates from the heavens, human range frequency is produced

within the realm of human activity, and lower frequency sound – sound produced by nature – comes from the earth.”

“Sóu-Lí/Sound,” which will feature work in a variety of media, including photography, illustration and computer art, will be

on view at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, July 8 – 22; Reception: Tuesday, July 11, 6 –
