Speaker Series :: Bojagi :: Youngmin Lee

Bojagi (Korean Wrapping Cloths) are pieced together from small scraps of cloth. It is the most unique form of Korean textile art. Bojagi occupied a prominent place in the daily lives of Koreans of all classes. They were used to wrap or carry everything from precious ritual objects to everyday clothes and common household goods and also to cover food. It is also strikingly contemporary: the designs and colours of bojagi remind one of the works of modern abstract artists. Bojagi can be described as a true form of abstract expressionism.

Youngmin Lee will talk about bojagi during this lecture and show her bojagi works. Join us to learn about this versatile, integral part of everyday Korean life. Registration is free for EAC/ACB members!
