The Movement of Herstory: Korean Embroidery

Korean Cultural Center
460 Park Avenue, 6th Floor,
New York, USA
Mar 02, 2017 To Apr 27, 2017


Detail: Boldly breaking the boundaries of the gyubang (women’s quarters), Korean women have created a movement via embroidery. A leader in this is artist and scholar Chung Young Yang, who has turned gyubang culture into a vital part of art history. The exhibition looks into embroidery’s legacy through Chung and her work, now an indelible part of Korean history.
