Lee and Friel on Korean textile art
Chunghie Lee (Critic, Textiles) and Mary Anne Friel (Assistant Professor, Textiles) will participate in the 2014 Korea Bojagi Forum.
The event is inspired by Bojagi, a traditional Korean wrapping cloth, and a unique form of Korean textile art. The forum is taking place in August 24-28, with Chunghie Lee serving as the 2014 KBF Director. Mary Anne Friel will lecture on Water Pavilion, her installation at the University of California Botanical Garden at Berkeley.
The forum is in its second biennale and will have international exhibitions, curator and artist delivered lectures, as well as cultural tours and workshops relating to traditional Korean fiber techniques.
