Leymusoom SarangBang Grand Opening (레이무숨 사랑방 개장 행사 // 六毋神之舍廊房慶典)


Time:Friday, April 15th - 5:00PM
location: 41 Ross/ Ross Alley

[RSVP]

Hosted by CCC and Heesoo Kwon, join us for a night of special performances to lustrate Ross Alley, Chinatown.
This event’s namesake “Sarangbang” (사랑방, 舍廊房) references a study and leisure room located in Korean traditional houses that were designated only for men. However, when you take the Korean word apart, ‘sarang’ means love, and ‘bang’ means room. For the artist, the ‘Room of Love” emerges as a conceptual space for prospering feminism and queer fluidity through leisure and communal activities. On Friday, April 15, join us at the “Sarangbang '' to explore a digital shrine of Chinatown small businesses, play time-travel ping pong, hang out by the shrimp BBQ, and be a part of the Leymusoom universe!
As a part of the artist’s ongoing practice “Leymusoom,” this ceremony is co-created with community members and is inspired by the urban conditions of the neighborhood, while also marking the midway point of Heesoo’s 3-month residency period.
Recognizing the neighborhood as a universe of converging connections and relationships, the artist brings together community members and Asian diaspora guest artists to celebrate our past, present, and future with a communal ceremony.
