Lineages: Korean Art at The Met
November 7, 2023 – October 20, 2024
In celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of The Met’s Arts of Korea gallery, their new exhibition, Lineages: Korean Art at The Met, opens today highlighting the Museum’s collection paired with important international loans of Korean modern and contemporary art. This juxtaposition of historic and contemporary artworks—from twelfth- and thirteenth-century celadons to futuristic cyborg sculptures made in the 2000s—displays the history of Korean art in broad strokes through four intertwined themes—lines, people, places, and things. Featuring thirty objects, this exhibition fosters a dialogue of ideas that have resonated across time and bound artists together.
