Korean Craft: Yesterday and Today
Divided into three parts, Korean Craft sheds light on the distinct lines and colors embedded in a variety of Korean handicrafts. Complementary aesthetics emerge from the bringing together of these diverse forms, such as handmade wooden furniture, vibrant costumes and textiles, and elegant household ceramics.
This unique exhibition brings together rare historical artifacts from the collection of the Sookmyung Women’s University Museum, including items used in the daily lives of the Sadaebu, the ruling elite class who dominated Korean political and cultural life during the evocative Joseon Dynasty period from the 15th to the 20th centuries, as well as reconstructed and reimagined works by modern craft artists.
