The Splendor of Korean Ceramics | Ga Young Oh
Wednesday Sep 23 05:30 PM
Doris Duke Theatre
About the Lecture:
Korea has one of the world’s great ceramic traditions. Centuries before the development of porcelain in Europe, Korean ceramics already attained a level of aesthetic and technical sophistication that was rivaled only by China. Using the exhibition Splendor and Serenity: Korean Ceramics from the Honolulu Museum of Art as a jumping off point, Korea Foundation visiting curator of Korean art Ga Young Oh gives a lecture on the remarkable history of Korean ceramics, from the elegant celadons of the Goryeo dynasty (918–1392) to the breathtaking white porcelains of the Joseon dynasty (1392–1910). Free.
