    Jul 23

    Free with museum admission ($5 after 5 PM)

    6:30—9 PM

    Samsung Hall

    Your Piece is inspired by Korean wrapping cloths, or bojagi, which women pieced together out of scraps of spare material, creating an heirloom full of beauty and utility from what would otherwise be waste. Artist Ahree Lee will reimagine the bojagi as a video installation featuring two works, the first video invites the public to participate in creating a collective wrapping cloth of memories.   Click here to view our call for submissions. For the second video, the artist explored and mined footage from Memories to Light, an archive of Asian American home movies, collected, digitized, and presented by the Center for Asian American Media.  

    At 7:30 PM join Ahree Lee and Silvia Chang, curatorial assistant of Korean Art to discuss the bojagi, the source of inspiration for "Your Piece." Meet at the top of the grand staircase.     

    The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition will be providing complimentary Valet Bicycle Parking starting at 5:30pm. So ride to the museum, park your bike with SF Bicycle Coalition, and attend Ahree Lee’s Your Piece!
