Annette Hur creates visual narratives of objecthood of the female individual taking in its stride inner confidence to destroy the false nature of inherited traditional culture and leap into the unknown. By working with abstraction through large scale oil paintings and Korean silk textiles, Hur explores the universality of gendered ideologies that subconsciously manipulates and subverts socio-sexual identities and how societal projections are embedded in our body and mind.

Presented by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences in collaboration with The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery, Columbia University.
