    COUTURE KOREA

    Asian Art Museum of San Francisco and Arumjigi Culture Keepers Foundation of Seoul partner to present the first major U.S. exhibition of historical and contemporary Korean fashion

     

    San Francisco, August 10 — From the courts of the Joseon dynasty (1392–1910) to the runways of Paris, Couture Korea immerses audiences in the splendid sophistication of historical and contemporary Korean fashion. The result of a partnership between the Seoul-based Arumjigi Culture Keepers Foundation and San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum, Couture Koreaintroduces U.S. audiences to the incomparable artistry and artistic legacy of Korean dress.

     

    The Asian Art Museum is the only venue for Couture Korea, which will be on view from Nov. 3, 2017 to Feb. 4, 2018

    . This original exhibition features more than 120 works, ranging from re-creations of garments from the Joseon dynasty to contemporary designs from Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel, pioneer of Korean fashion Jin Teok, and two Seoul-based Korean designers. Couture Korea delves deeper than the clothing’s formal beauty and superb craftsmanship to show that these works, as art, are not only intimate objects but also cultural expressions. Visitors will come away with a rich understanding of the social and cultural roots, as well as the global impact, of Korean fashion.

     

    Arumjigi, a group of researchers, scholars and artisans dedicated to the preservation, exhibition and promotion of Korean cultural practices, has prepared a range of garments for inclusion in Couture Korea that represent traditional Korean fashion: re-creations of kings’ robes made from fabric so fine it is nearly transparent, 18th-century courtesans’ ensembles, and children’s first-birthday costumes. In addition, contemporary styles created by world-renowned Korean designers, including “master of deconstruction” Jin Teok (b. 1934), “tech” fabric impresario Im Seonoc (b. 1962) and understated traditionalist Jung Misun (b. 1984), will be shown alongside Korea-inspired looks from Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel.

     

    Even in today’s ultra-modern, forward-looking Korea, traditional culture continues to be relevant. Couture Korea reveals how contemporary designs emerged from specific historical contexts and social customs and how many were influenced by traditional handicrafts and artisanal practices.

     

    Couture Korea elegantly ties together the traditions of the past with contemporary clothing design to illuminate the ways Koreans — and global fashion aficionados — express themselves and their cultural affiliations through dress today,” explains exhibition organizer and Asian Art Museum Curator of Korean Art Hyonjeong Kim Han. “By guiding audiences in identifying the unique shapes, materials and colors that distinguish the spirit of Korean fashion, we reveal fashion’s critical role in defining Korean cultural identity now and in the future.”

     

    Exhibition Organization

     

    Couture Korea is co-organized by the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco and the Arumjigi Culture Keepers Foundation, Korea. Presentation is made possible with the generous support of Korea Foundation, Sulwhasoo, The Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang Fund for Excellence in Exhibitions and Presentations, Warren Felson and Lucy Sun, Anne and Timothy Kahn, John Maa, M.D., Stephanie and James Marver, Suno Kay Osterweis, Salle E. Yoo and Jeffrey P. Gray, Lawrence and Gorretti Lui, and Ruth and Ken Wilcox. Support for this publication is provided by Sung Jin and Frank Ingriselli.
