Contemporary Korean Craft for Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art
SEY ARTNET programmed a special tour for Korea’s most renowned private art museum, Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art. The initial objective of the tour intended to expose Korean contemporary craft to the museum’s VIP members, a genre that is less known to the public. The tour endeavored to introduce a versatile range of craft-making from ceramics to furniture to basketry and jewelry. SEY ARTNET selected Korea’s high-profile craft artists including An, Seung Tae; Choi, Byung Hoon; Choi, Jaewook; Joun, Sung Nim; Kang, Oong Ki; Ko, Heesook; Kim, Min Sun; Lee, Byung Hoon; Lee, Gee Jo; Lee, HunChung; Lee, In Chin; Shin, Sang Ho; Yi, Jung Gyu and Yoo, Lizzy.
SEY ARTNET provided the opportunity for the VIP members to meet directly as potential patrons with these skillful masters, who are often given lesser spotlight than fine artists. We hope that the tour has established a new outlook on Korean contemporary craft.
