The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that separates North and South Korea is an unlikely setting for an art gallery. Established in 1953 as part of an armistice agreement that ended three years of brutal war, the DMZ is a 2.5-mile-wide band that runs 155 miles across the Korean peninsula, serving as a buffer zone between the two countries. Yet a new art gallery does actually exist in that strange locale. And this spring and summer, the Yeongang Gallery has been featuring Global Station: Until the Next Voyage, a solo exhibition by UC Santa Cruz art professor Jimin Lee, running April 19 to July 30.
