Flushing Town Hall and New York Korean Cultural Heritage Foundation to Celebrate Buddha’s Birthday with Unique Presentation of Mystic and Glamorous, an Exhibition of Goryeo Buddhist Painting, in April and May
Flushing Town Hall and the Korean Cultural Heritage Foundation will present an exhibition featuring the artworks of three contemporary Korean artists who have inherited and developed the spirit and traditional techniques of Goryeo Buddhist Paintings in April. The works by Joy Rock, Chang Ho Kang, and Seoung Jo Hyun illuminate the renaissance in Korean fine arts during the Goryeo Dynasty. The new exhibition, “Mystic and Glamorous”, will run from April 22 to May 3 (which is Buddha’s birthday according to the Lunar calendar), and feature a lecture and demonstration displaying mastery of this traditional technique in Flushing Town Hall’s theatre on April 22. “As our mission is to bring people together by presenting global arts programming our gallery and theatre, we welcome the opportunity to present these wonderful artists and guests who have traveled to us from around the globe,” said Ellen Kodadek, Executive and Artistic Director at Flushing Town Hall. “We are delighted to host this magnificent and informative exhibition.”
“We hope Americans would have a chance to get to know and appreciate Goryeo Buddhist Paintings, as we plan to expand the exhibition to other cities in the United States,” said Jeeyoung Kim, Chairperson, Board of Directors, Korean Cultural Heritage Foundation.
