Exposition : “Patrons of Buddhist Art”, Musée National de Corée
Patrons of Buddhist Art
발원發願, 간절한 바람을 담다 – 불교미술의 후원자들
Jusqu’au 2 août 2015
Musée National de Corée, Séoul
Focusing on the activities and aspirations of patrons of Korean Buddhist art, this exhibition uses an array of Buddhist artworks – including sculptures, craftworks, paintings and scriptures – to show how patrons have shaped the trajectory of Korean Buddhist culture over time. Recent research has unveiled new details about how patrons have long sought to employ religious artworks to reflect the complex interrelations of their faith, power, and socio-economic status.
