Korean fiber artist presentation at The Burke

Friday, December 27, 2013



From the Rhode Island School of Design, the internationally recognized Korean fiber artist, Chunghie Lee, presents a captivating talk on Bojagi (Pojagi), the traditional Korean wrapping cloth created from leftover scraps of fabric by women of a household. Used to wrap or carry everything from precious ritual objects to common everyday items, Bojagi flourished during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). A unique form of Korean textile art, Bojagi has been transformed today into a strikingly contemporary form of abstract expressionism.

Author of the authoritative study, Pojagi: Korean Traditional Wrapping Cloths, Lee has inspired artistic creations of wall pieces, sculptures and high fashion apparel throughout the world. Her Bojagi works are in the permanent collections of numerous museums, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and the Museum of Art and Design, New York City.

Sunday, February 9, 1-3pm at The Burke Museum (U.W. Seattle Campus).
