Join the School of Art and The Art Galleries at TCU for the opening of “Children Need Love Like Flowers Need Rain,” a solo exhibition featuring the work of renowned Houston-based artist JooYoung Choi on Friday, March 1 at 6 p.m. in the Fort Worth Contemporary Arts Gallery. 

Originally from Seoul, South Korea, Choi earned her Master of Fine Arts from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her artwork has been exhibited at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Parrish Art Museum and Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, among others. 

 The exhibition delves into imagined realms using diverse mediums such as soft sculpture, paintings and video works. Choi captures interconnected narratives within “The Cosmic Womb,” an expansive, partly autobiographical fictional land. With its own characters and mythology, this imaginary space allows Choi to explore her own identity through multiple roles and different characters. 

“We’re thrilled to be able to showcase JooYoung’s work on campus and grateful that she will be able to spend so much time with us,” said Sara-Jayne Parsons, director of The Art Galleries at TCU. “Not only delivering an artist talk but also meeting with graduate students in their studios and leading a workshop with undergraduates. Students will have several opportunities to connect with a fascinating artist whose interdisciplinary work inspires making and creative thinking.” 

The Art Galleries at TCU would like to thank Inman Gallery for assistance in presenting the works of JooYoung Choi.

Choi will present an artist talk on Thursday, Feb. 29, at 5 p.m. in J.M. Moudy North room 132. 

Children Need Love Like Flowers Need Rain,” will be on exhibit from March 1 – May 4, 2024 at Fort Worth Contemporary Arts.
