The Crow Museum of Asian Art of The University of Texas at Dallas will present JooYoung Choi: "Songs of Resilience from the Tapestry of Faith." The exhibit will feature the works of a Houston-based multidisciplinary artist whose paintings, videos, sculptures, animations, music, and installations merge the autobiographical with the fantastical.

The exhibition marks the third and final offering of the museum’s Texas Asian Women Artists series, which kicked off in January 2020 to honor the innovative work of contemporary Texas-based Asian women artists. The artists presented in this program focus on contemporary issues both in Texas and abroad, giving voice to complex, humanized stories of identity, place, tradition and modernity.

Choi, known as a multidisciplinary world builder, uses explosive color through a variety of mediums to document the interconnecting narratives of a highly-structured, expansive, fictional land she has devised and titled the Cosmic Womb. In creating the Cosmic Womb multiverse, Choi expresses human resiliency and the strength that can be found through the power of storytelling.

In her first Dallas museum presentation, this exhibition introduces the Cosmic Womb and its various characters and narratives, exploring themes of loss, healing and growth, and forms a tapestry of belief and faith in oneself.

In addition to presenting a variety of paintings and large-scale soft-sculptural works, the exhibition will also include the first museum screening of Choi’s newest film, Spectra Force Vive: Infinite Pie Delivery Service, which features an ensemble cast of puppets, animated characters, human actors, and was made with contributions from actors, voice talent, artists, musicians, and puppeteers from around the world. The film introduces viewers to incredible superheroes who are impacted by an intergalactic war, and brings them along a journey as they attempt to save the interdependent web of reality by freeing all of the untold stories and silenced truths of the universe.
