  2. Hey Korean,

    The National Portrait Gallery in DC recently opened a temporary exhibition exploring the theme of being Asian in America. I thought of your blog when viewing two of the more interesting installations, which were by Korean artists navigating what they saw as the contradictions and complexity of being Korean and American.

    I'll leave the link here, in case you're interested: http://www.npg.si.edu/exhibit/encounter/
