HOK Korea Day

BIG Congradutations to the successful Hands of Korea exhibition.
Thank you for all of whom have supported and visited. We will soon update the gallery page.

Welcome to the Hands of Korea website, where you will find current information about these exciting exhibits and related events.

The annual European Patchwork Meeting in Alsace, France has selected Korea as the Guest of Honor Country in the fall of 2010. I am very honored to be the cheif curator for the Hands of Korea exhibitions. Over 100 Korean artists have come together to present four exhibitions that exemplify the best of Koreans cultural heritage in textiles.   I expect that Hands of Korea will make a significant contribution to the Meeting by presenting Korean bojagi, contemporary art quilts, joomchi, and Imperial costume. Hands of Korea will be on view in Alsace, France from September 16th to September 19th, 2010. We expect at least 30,000 quilt lovers and visitors from 50 countries to attend the European Patchwork Meeting, and its celebration of Korean textile arts.

I am grateful that the Cheongju International Craft Biennale is sponsoring full-color catalog of Hands of Korea's three shows (Bojagi, Joomchi & Quilt).
