“Women and War: A Contemporary Art Perspective" brings together the work of three Korean artists who address the past, present and future of the ‘comfort woman’ issue.

Glendale Library, Arts & Culture is honored to mark the 10th anniversary of the Korean Peace Monument in Glendale with the opening of “Women and War: A Contemporary Art Perspective” at ReflectSpace Gallery at Glendale Central Library. Reflecting on a decade of activism, this exhibition brings together the work of three Korean artists - Kim Chang Kyum, Choi Chongwoon, and Zu Do Yang - who address the past, present and future of the ‘comfort woman’ issue.

Dutch photographer and artist Jan Banning’s portraits of Indonesian ‘Comfort Women’ are display in the PassageWay Gallery along with work by several Korean-American student artists. Organized by Phyllis Kim of C.A.R.E. (Comfort Women Action for Redress & Education) these works by artists Seung Chan Kim, Won Hwang, Ian B. Kim, Yoomin Lee, Woohyung Jung and Audrey Kim, expand on the various themes of ‘comfort women’ and their histories. 

The exhibition runs through September 24, 2023. It is curated by Monica Hye Yeon Jun, who has been collaborating with Library, Arts & Culture staff for a decade. ReflectSpace Gallery is co-curated by Ara and Anahid Oshagan. 

A free dual language exhibition catalog will be available in the gallery.

About the library

Established in 1906.

Library services in Glendale were first provided in 1906. The women of the Tuesday Afternoon Club, a social and philanthropic organization, raised money through a series of lectures to fund a library collection. The library opened in a renovated pool room at Third and E (Wilson and Everett) Streets with seventy books, soon supplemented by a State Traveling Library of fifty more, and served a population of 1,186.

In 1907, the City Trustees passed Ordinance 53 which established and supported a library which "...shall be forever free to the inhabitants and nonresident taxpayers of the City of Glendale..." The first year the library had 251 books, 165 registered patrons, and a budget of $248.88.

In 1913, a Carnegie grant of $12,500 made possible the construction of the main library at Kenwood and Fifth (Harvard Street). The building was completed and dedicated November 13, 1914.
