The Dream of the Audience: Theresa Hak Kyung Cha (1951-1982), by Constance Lewallen

The catalogue of a retrospective exhibit of Cha's work, held at a Berkeley gallery contains biographical narratives and interviews with fellow students/artists and teachers who were intimate with her experimental film/art/written language work. Fluent in French, English and Korea, Cha's 'seventies experimental art included performance, film, slides, and always, words. This catalogue presents the lesser-known side of Cha's artistry through stills from film and gallery shows, and gives a broader overview of Cha's body of art.
