Redefining Tradition
through the Couture Korea Exhibition

Asian Art and History:
Experience the Arts and History of Korea

Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning


Hyonjeong Kim Han, Associate Curator of Korean Art, Asian Art Museum of San Francisco

This lecture will focus on the story of creating Couture Korea, the first major exhibition in the U.S. about Korean fashion and costume (Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, November 3, 2017 – February 4, 2018). This exhibition featured more than 120 works, ranging from re-creations of garments from the Joseon dynasty to contemporary designs from Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel, pioneer of Korean fashion Jin Teok, and two Seoul-based Korean designers. Couture Korea delves deeper than the clothing’s formal beauty and superb craftsmanship to show that these works, as art, are not only intimate objects, but they are also cultural expressions. Discussing the challenges and achievements of organizing the exhibition, Hyonjeong Kim Han will also present a brief overview on the costume culture of the Joseon dynasty (1392-1910).


Admission includes lunch and a discussion with the lecturer immediately following the lecture. This presentation is part of the Asian Art and History lecture series.
