ART | 'Blanket Statement' 

Julia Kwon, an artist based in the Washington, D.C. area, creates sculptural work that combines traditional Korean patchwork and hybrid textiles with constructed figures wrapped within and burdened by an abundance of the cloth. The work is both a tribute to her cultural background and acknowledgement of the concepts of women's work and isolation from the outside world. Provided info says that her hidden figures are meant to symbolize constructed notions of what it means to be Korean or feminine, and comment on the dehumanizing process of being identified, reduced, and categorized. Her solo show, "Blanket Statement," is on view this month at Hartnett Gallery.

The exhibition continues through March 11 at Hartnett Gallery (Wilson Commons, University of Rochester, 500 Wilson Boulevard). Tuesday through Friday, noon to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Free. 275-4188; blogs.rochester.edu/hartnett.
