Documentary short on Imi Hwangbo by Georgia Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts
A film on the studio practice of Imi Hwangbo has been produced by the Georgia Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Part of a series by Atlanta filmmaker Janey Fugate, this short film documents Imi Hwangbo in her studio as she prepares for “Paper Routes: Women to Watch 2020” at the Museum of Contemporary Art Georgia in Atlanta. “Paper Routes” is curated by Michael Rooks, Wiegand Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the High Museum in Atlanta. The show opens January 24 and runs through March 7, 2020.
Imi Hwangbo is one five Georgia artists working in paper in the MOCA Georgia show. The exhibition will focus on the transformation of paper into complex works of art. “Paper Routes: Women to Watch 2020” will demonstrate that paper is not always the overlooked support for drawings, prints, and photographs, but instead an extraordinary medium in and of itself. Women to Watch is an exhibition program, held every two to three years, developed by the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
