Corcoran alumna featured in local Art Gallery

August 10, 2009

Reincorporation Jamboree, curated by Steven Frost, the Corcoran’s senior assistant director of admissions, is currently on exhibition at the Honfleur Gallery in Washington, D.C. Along with several other artists, the exhibition features the photography of Corcoran graduate, Hatnim Lee. Honfleur Gallery worked with Frost to facilitate the show, which explores contemporary coming-of-age experiences through the eyes of emerging artists. Frost selected artists whose work is anthropological, each of whom touches on contemporary popular culture, the artists own rites-of-passage, and the subsequent emergence of unique perspectives. The exhibition includes photography, mixed media installation, and interactive works.
Following her graduation from Corcoran College of Art + Design, Hatnim Lee built an impressive resume of fashion and fine art photography. Preceding a 2006 internship with David LaChapelle, Lee’s art divided into three bodies of work: street photography, whimsical high art images, and fashion work. Hatnim has chronicled her travels on her blog and draws from the tradition of photographers like Nan Goldin, Ryan McGinley, and William Eggleston. Reincorporation Jamboree is open to the public at the Honfleur Gallery from June 22 to July 25. A closing reception will be held on Friday, July 24 at 7p.m.
