MINHWA & minhwa: Korean Folk Paintings in Dialogue with the Contemporary

Minhwa, literally “the art of the common people,” are Korean folk paintings that prevailed in the 19th and 20th centuries. By looking at its distinct qualities from works of that era, as well as works of Korean contemporary minhwa artist Seongmin Ahn, the exhibition examines how the tradition is preserved and the way it exerts an influence on the art of today.
