Long Term Installation

Space Drawing by Sun K. Kwak

Theatre Gallery

New York-based Korean-American artist Sun K. Kwak’s canvas is architectural space, and her primary medium is black masking tape. Kwak created a site-specific installation at the Wang Center with her sprawling freehand strokes over surfaces, to dramatic effect.
