QC Art Center: “MINHWA—PAINTING RESILIENCE”
December 1, 2021 - December 20, 2021Free
This new exhibit at the Queens College Art Center highlights a Korean folk art popular from the late 18th to the 20th century. With their bright color and free-spirited expression, minhwa, which means “paintings of the people,” conveyed good wishes, humor, and positive energy at a time when Korea was experiencing colonization and warfare. More than 30 examples of the genre, regenerated by members of the Korea Minhwa Association Ltd. in both South Korea and the United States, comprise the show.
Presented with the support of the Kupferberg Center for the Arts and Korean Folk Art Inc. and curated by Stephanie Lee (Godwin-Ternbach), the exhibition is designed to promote global cultural awareness.
