BOJAGI exhibit KOREA Society!

Bojagi : Cloth, Color & Beyond by Chunghie Lee
The exhibition features internationally recognized Korean textile artist Chunghie Lee’s contemporary Bojagiworks. Once commonly employed in everyday life for carrying, covering and storing objects, Bojagi now has become one of the most widely recognized and appreciated of all traditional Korean textile arts. Chunghie Lee’s work integrates traditional Bojagi motifs into innovative designs with vivid color compositions. Evoking the artistic inspiration of the countless anonymous women who made Bojagi through the ages, Lee's art retains a meaningful link to the past. Lee has been teaching at Rhode Island School of Design since 1999 and her works are in permanent collections in numerous museums, including Victoria & Albert Museum, London, U.K. and the Museum of Art & Design, New York, USA.
