Andrea Chung: You broke the ocean in half to be here

An invasive species threatening Caribbean ecosystems inspires “Filthy water cannot be washed,” a large-scale installation from San Diego-based Andrea Chung. The installation features ethereal cyanotype prints of the destructive lionfish, which Chung uses as a metaphor through which to explore questions of labor, migration and colonialism. The show, which marks Chung’s first solo museum exhibition, also includes a selection of drawings and collages. May 18-Aug. 27.
