Korea Imagined: Korean Visual Culture in Chicago, 19-20 octobre 2012


From art collections to doctoral programs, the cultural and academic institutions of Chicago have long promoted the study of Korean history and culture. Both the Smart Museum and the University of Chicago have been pioneers and leaders in the advancement of Korean studies. The Smart’s recent exhibition From the Land of the Morning Calm demonstrates this commitment and reflects new research contributed by a group of University of Chicago student scholars inspired by Smart Museum objects. This symposium, presented in partnership with the Center for East Asian Studies, explores current research trends and scholarship in a broad spectrum of Korean visual culture, from research produced as part of the Smart’s recent exhibition, to Buddhist art, to contemporary cinema, and more.
