Wrapping Traditions: Korean Textiles Now
The Museum of Craft and Folk Art (mocfa.org) presents a unique exhibition of contemporary textiles from June 17-October 23, 2011 featuring over 65 works by international artists who are interpreting the traditional Korean textile Bojagi in innovative ways.
This exhibition presents the work of artists from Korea, the United States, England, Finland, the Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Iceland, and Japan. The work includes delicately pieced and hand stitched traditional Bojagi, wearable pieces, installations, and wall hangings, all of which echo the larger world of art. This uniquely Korean folk art of anonymous ancestors has evolved into a contemporary art form embraced worldwide.
