Traces of Life: Seen Through Korean Eyes, 1945-1992

Event Date/Time

Feb 6, 2013 to May 26, 2013
12:00 pm until 5:00 pm

This event occurs weekly on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Description

Traces of Life: Seen Through Korean Eyes, 1945-1992

“Traces of Life: Seen Through Korean Eyes, 1945-1992” captures the details of Korean people's everyday lives between 1945 and 1992. The exhibition features 27 photographs taken by the first generation of Korean realists, thirteen pioneers whose works evoke nostalgia for a nation in a radical transition from its past. Curator Chang Jae Lee describes the exhibition as a counterpoint to the turbulent history of this period in Korea, featuring "exuberant visual diversity" and "anthropologically important aspects of the nearly forgotten past." Touching and expressive, the photographs show how people used their traditions and humanity to face a new world of independence, industrialization, development and complex political shifts. The exhibition offers a moving visual experience through which to understand and appreciate Korean history, culture, and the arts. The debut of this exhibition at The Korea Society in New York in September 2012 was the first time these black-and-white photographs had been exhibited in the United States. This exhibition is presented by The Korea Society and independent curator Chang Jae Lee with generous loans from the Dong Gang Museum of Photography in Korea and the estates of Kim Kichan and Lee Hyungrok.
