February 4, 2012 | 11:00am — 5:00pm
This symposium will consider themes relating to Keeping It Real, an exhibition hosted by the CU Art Museum, which comments on the contemporary state of South Korean art by offering a unique and unprecedented opportunity to experience new art forms pioneered by emerging Korean artists working in Seoul, New York, and Europe. Featured works challenge existing stereotypes about Asian art and thus break new ground for understanding diversity within Asia and new shared experiences across the world.
