Andrea Chung: Between Too Late and Too Early

Overview

Artist Andrea Chung’s (b. 1978, Newark, NJ) upcoming solo show in the Fall at MOCA’s aim is to bring together recent considerations of Black liberation and an Afrofuturist utopia in conversation with older works.

Working across multiple mediums including intimate collages that use archival images and mixed media, to large scale installations and multichannel video, Andrea Chung’s work investigates the colonial as it relates to motherhood, Blackness, the impact of trauma and the imagination. Using concepts like Drexciya as a springboard, she re-contextualizes history and offers alternate possibilities for self-concept.
