In celebration of the recent publication of two bilingual JSMA Korean art catalogues, this exhibition features traditional and contemporary Korean art in many media. One gallery focuses on contemporary paintings, ceramics, and sculptures and includes a number of exciting recent acquisitions created by artists such as Kim Hanna, Kim Yik-yung, and Paik Nam June. The other gallery displays traditional Korean folk paintings and celadons. This rotation was organized with the assistance of GaYeon Go, the museum’s 2015–16 Korea Foundation Global Museum Intern.
