You are invited || Flora Choi's Daeng'gi Kimchi Factory - Opening Reception Dec. 22

Flora Choi, Art in Odd Places 2011 artist, has an upcoming exhibition at Cuchifritos Gallery and Project Space. The opening reception will be on Dec. 22 from 5 to 7 pm.  Flora's work will be on display until January 15. Flora talked to us about her work:

Daeng'gi Kimchi Factory - Dec. 22

"Daeng'gi Kimchi Factory is a performance--installation piece where I will be taking chopped off daeng'gi braids ( a traditional Korean hairstyle that was once worn by adolescent girls) for cabbage, and make my own special version of kimchi. This piece confronts the male-dominated traditions of the past and investigates the state of women in Korea today. This piece will be accompanied by several live performances"

Performance Dates are as follows:
                                                  Dec 22- 5-7pm,
                                                  Dec. 30 3-4pm,
                                                  Jan 6, 3-4pm, and
                                                  Jan 13 3-4pm.

CUCHIFRITOS Gallery and Project Space is located at 120 Essex Street, inside Essex Street Market between Rivington and Delancey Street.

We are very excited for your exhibition, Flora! See you on Dec. 22 for the opening

There are currently open volunteer positions to join the Art in Odd Places team.


Art in Odd Places (AiOP) presents visual and performance art in unexpected public spaces. AiOP also produces an annual festival along 14th Street in Manhattan, NYC from Avenue C to the Hudson River each October. Art in Odd Places' mission is to stretch the boundaries of communication in the public realm by presenting artworks in all disciplines outside the confines of traditional public space regulations. AiOP reminds us that public spaces function as the epicenter for diverse social interactions and the unfettered exchange of ideas.

We are seeking a dynamic and creative social media coordinator who can assist our PR strategy and further our branding within the NYC arts community. Ideal candidates must have a strong interest in arts and/or public art; have flexibility and the initiative to work both independently and as part of a team, have demonstrated familiarity across different social media platforms and possess excellent communication and writing skills. This opportunity will allow you the freedom to create/implement strategies and establish digital relationships to boost the organization's online presence. Check out our past festivals and press at

AiOP is a grassroots organization with no office so candidate must be prepared to work from home and have computer/cell phone availability. Ideal candidate must commit until the end of the AiOP festival in mid October 2012.
