Local Story: Jiseon Lee Isbara

Join us for a Local Story event on August 16th presented by South Korean artist Jiseon Lee Isbara. Amplified by her experience as a first generation immigrant, she engages with socially charged dialogue through the accumulated aesthetics, materials and processes she has garnered as an emigrant from her native culture. Through her artwork, Jiseon questions the congruity around her emotions and immigration politics. Jiseon currently serves as Dean of Academic Affairs at Oregon College of Art and Craft.

Light refreshments and appetizers will be served.

When: Thursday, August 16, 2018 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Where: Oregon College of Art and Craft in the Jean Vollum Drawing, Painting & Photography Building, 8245 SW Barnes Rd. Portland, OR 97225
Cost: $6.50 Suggested Donation
