Male Worlds–Female Worlds: Gender Specific Aspects of Early Joseon Painting

Hosted by the History of Art Department, Dr. Burglind Jungmann will give a public talk that analyzes Korean paintings of the 15th and 16th centuries and unwraps layers of social significance and cultural background. The lecture will shed light on the shaping of male and female roles in early Joseon society and on the role that Buddhism played in this Confucian world.

Dr. Jungmann joined UCLA as Professor of Korean Art History in 1999 and held an appointment as Adjunct Curator of Korean Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art from 1999 to 2003. Her teaching and research interests include the history of Korean painting in its cultural, social, and political contexts, and the exchange in art between China, Korea, and Japan. Her book Painters as Envoys: Korean Inspiration in Eighteenth-Century Japanese Nanga was published by Princeton University Press in 2004. Most recently, Dr. Jungmann served as guest curator for the UCLA Fowler Museum’s Life in Ceramics exhibition, which is on view at UMMA April 2 through June 26.

Dr. Jungmann will also give a public talk specifically about the current Life in Ceramics exhibition on Sunday, April 10 at 3 pm in the Helmut Stern Auditorium.
