    ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

    “KOREA” presents work by South and North Korean artists in juxtaposition along with work by international artists. South Korean artists include Ildan Choi, Sungho Choi, Henry Kim, Myong Hi Kim, Tcha-sup Kim, Kakyoung Lee, Kelvin K. Park, Yooah Park, and Sungsook Setton while North Korean artists are Chang-ho Choi, Gye-keun Choi, Chang-mo Chung, In-soo Pang, Chang Ri, Young Sunu, and others. International artists include Nick Bonner, Debby Branch, and an artist collective, Lily and Honglei. To enrich the context, the exhibition also collects some items from North Korea such as art related books, posters, and stamps. The exhibition does not attempt to intervene in any political matters. Focused only on art, the exhibition is a comparative study that attempts not only to explore arts from the two Koreas, but also to provoke a critical reflection on current international exhibitions that, driven by the force of the global art market, stylize contemporary art, which in turn increasingly becomes homogeneous in appearance. Still, the exhibition opens up a philosophical discourse on the possibility of writing about a deep continuity of perpetually altering contemporary art that advances by the logic of contradiction. The exhibition sets a geographical limit to its investigation of the arts from Korea, which is not to promote Korean nationalism, but to examine a the rmocline in contemporary art by looking at the fascinating narratives and frameworks of art from Korea.

     

    ABOUT “DRUM KOREA”

    To enhance the public experience of the exhibition, the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts specially offers “Drum Korea” as a part of the exhibition’s Opening program, presenting a set of Korean percussion music. The repertoire includes Moon Gut (a traditional ritual music that performers play when entering the stage), Jindo Bukchoom (a Korean traditional drum dance performed by farmers), Samdo Sul Changgo (a percussion music widely spread in southern South Korea), and Samdo Samulnori (an ensemble of four percussion instruments). The concert is performed by the New York Korean Traditional Marching Band, a professional Korean traditional percussion group based in Flushing, New York. Members of the band include Chunseung Lee, Sangyul Lee, and Maggie Kim. 


    CREDITS

    The exhibition and its programs are fruits of yearlong collaboration with the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts and the Asian and Asian American Studies Institute in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University Connecticut.  The exhibition, an improved edition of KOREA that was previously presented in 2014 at the FiveMyles in Brooklyn, NY, will run through December 11, 2015.
