This year, to mark the start of UK-Korea Season 2017-18, the V&A will hold a special display titled Contemporary Korean Ceramics from 19 May 2017 to 11 February 2018 in the Ceramic Galleries. It will bring together works by 15 emerging and established artists from Korea to offer a range of insights into the richness of contemporary Korean studio ceramic practice. The display originated from the Fondation d’entreprise Bernardaud and their guest curator Hyeyoung Cho, and is organised and curated for the V&A by Dr Rosalie Kim, Samsung Curator of Korean Art.
Contemporary Korean Ceramics celebrates the many channels of expression in contemporary Korean ceramics today. Some works relate to current issues in Korean society, whilst others re-interpret tradition or experiment with different making techniques. The display will also feature the V&A’s recent acquisitions of Korean ceramics made possible with support from Samsung.
