poster for "Representation/Abstraction in Korean Art" Exhibition

This event has ended.

This special installation brings together objects and paintings from different periods of Korean art history, whose pairings and juxtapositions highlight the beauty, power, and emotional resonance of both representation and abstraction. Some works offer recognizable portrayals of a given subject filtered through artistic interpretation. Others, because of their distilled form, color, or design, might be characterized as abstractions. Still others are eloquently expressionist renderings that are open to layered translations. Many of the works on view might straddle the two opposing yet overlapping categories.
