Lecture Series: Exhibiting Asia in the 21st Century
Today, exhibiting Asian art involves challenges never imagined when our museums and disciplines were established. Leading experts in the field explore these issues through the Exhibiting Asia in the 21st Century occasional lecture series, inaugurated in 2012 to honor the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery.
GRASS AND HONEY: CONTINUITY AND CONTINGENCY IN SEOUL
Heejin Kim, Art Space Pool (Seoul)
Thursday, April 5, 7 pm
Freer Gallery of Art,Meyer Auditorium

How do independent art initiatives constitute and sustain themselves within the particular context of Seoul? Heejin Kim, director of Art Space Pool, introduces the unique institutional character of this alternative art space, including its ongoing dedication to self-organized collective activities. Focusing on Pool’s most radical venture, a complex cultural space called Honey, she discusses alternative efforts to support critical engagement in contemporary art and how artists navigate Korea’s official cultural policy system.
This lecture is presented in conjunction with Korean Film Festival DC 2012: The Art of the Moving Image from Korea, and with the generous support of the Korea Foundation.
