Jinkee Choi at Gana Art Gallery
One of several manipulated found objects of sharp subversive humor by this artist on view at Gana Art Gallery as part of the AHL Foundation’s sixth annual Visual Arts Competition winners’ exhibition, in which he won first prize. “Eclectic Visionaries” features six Korean and Korean-American artists: jurors were Nathalie Anglès, Melissa Chiu, and Benjamin Genocchio, and the show was curated by Hyewon Yi. Other exhibitors are Jarrett Min Davis, whose fantasy realist paintings fuse Korean and American folkloristic elements; video artist Yeon Jin Kim; sensitive still-life photographer Jeonghyun Lee; graphite-animation artist Kakyoung Lee; and sculptor Jaye Moon, maker of sexy, streamlined Plexiglas valises. Through August 29, 568 West 25th Street.
