Life in Ceramics: Five Korean Contemporary Artists

Sunday, April 10, 3 pm - 4:30 pm
Helmut Stern Auditorium

Dr. Burglind Jungmann, Professor of Korean Art History at UCLA and curator of the Life in Ceramics: Five Contemporary Korean Artists exhibition, will give a talk that explores the themes of the exhibition and focuses on the role of Korea’s rich ceramic tradition in inspiring these five artists and the fluid character of ceramics as both functional objects and works of art.

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 in the History of Art Department entitled “Male Worlds–Female Worlds: Gender Specific Aspects of Early Joseon Painting” on Friday, April 8 at 4 pm in Tappan Hall, room 180.

Life in Ceramics: Five Contemporary Korean Artists was organized and produced by the Fowler Museum at UCLA. It was made possible by a major grant from the Korea Foundation. Additional support was provided by Korean Airlines. UMMA’s installation is made possible in part by the University of Michigan Health System, Office of the President, and Nam Center for Korean Studies, and by the Friends of the University of Michigan Museum of Art, the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
