Joan Oh (MFA '15) received prominent mention in Washington City Paper

Congratulations to Joan Oh for making the Washington City Paper's list of top five images of 2013. Link to the full article here.

"Oh’s large-scale works were the standout of the Corcoran College of Art and Design’s student show. Working on the Internet frontier, Oh downloaded tourist photos of the pyramids of Giza, Niagara Falls, and Stonehenge from around the Web, then organized them into seven-by-10-foot arrays to illustrate patterns of “redundancy” in the human travel experience, as well as the 'validation' that people get from sharing their snapshots—a timely exploration in the age of social media. Oh’s works in the series offer the perfect combination of intellectual heft and visual skill."
