A MODERN KOREAN CERAMICS exhibition entitled TRADITIONAL YET CONTEMPORARYis curated by Stephanie Seungmin Kim (김승민 큐레이터)., from Monday May 29th to Saturday 3rd June 2006.
This exhibition is a part of The 4th London Korean Festival 2006, which is being celebrated to mark 120 years of diplomatic relations between Korea and U.K. It is the first time that an exhibition of Korean ceramics focused on a specific modern period is being exhibited in London, furthermore exemplifying an interchange in ceramics, a vibrant art scene in which both countries have shared their passion.
For this exhibition, a collection by most established artists was chosen by the Joseon Royal Kiln Museum, which is located in the city of Gwangju, Korea, the home of the royal kilns that were established by the Joseon dynasty and operated for 400 years. The exhibition showcases 36 diverse artworks by 12 of Korea’s most important ceramic artists, revealing the latest innovations of the country’s rich ceramic tradition of 5,000 years.
The special exhibition of Korean ceramics accompanied with documentaries, photo illustrations, and detailed commentaries, will enrich Britain’s ceramic art scene with an exciting fresh theme.
