2017 Exhibitions & Special Events

Exhibition: March 2–April 27

The Movement of Herstory:
Korean Embroidery

Boldly breaking the boundaries of the gyubang (women’s quarters), Korean women have created a movement via embroidery. A leader in this is artist and scholar Young Yang Chung, who has turned gyubang culture into a vital part of art history. The exhibition looks into embroidery’s legacy through Chung and her work, now an indelible part of Korean history.
