“The creativity inside of us can bring us all on an incredible voyage, led by love. The love of others who care for us and help us grow, and the love we give to others on this journey I call Wondervision.” – JooYoung Choi
For the summer 2023 exhibition, the Moody Center for the Arts presents an immersive exhibition by Houston-based multimedia artist JooYoung Choi (b. 1982, Seoul, South Korea). Featuring video, sculpture, painting, and a site-specific installation engaging the building’s architecture, Love and Wondervision invites visitors to experience Choi’s original, multidisciplinary world. Drawing from an imaginary universe of characters and narratives inspired by Choi’s childhood memories and personal experiences, her work explores themes of identity, belonging, trauma, and resilience. Through playful forms and colorful images, the artist taps into the power of storytelling and worldbuilding to convey themes of kindness and healing in the face of racism and social division.
This exhibition is curated by Executive Director Alison Weaver, with Assistant Curator Molly Everett.
JooYoung Choi: Love and Wondervision is made possible by the Thomas D. and Pamela Riley Smith Endowment for the Moody Center for the Arts. Additional support is provided by the Brad and Leslie Bucher Artist Endowment, the Tamara de Kuffner Fund, the Kilgore Endowment Fund, and the Sewall Endowment.
