Art Right Here Right Now

Chunghie Lee: My Cup Overflows
Fuller Craft Museum
June 11, 2009– October 18, 2009

Korean-born fiber artist, Chunghie Lee, was at RISD when I studied there. Even then her work was dream-like and powerful. Here's from the website's description of this installation:

The "installation references the anonymous, ancient women who, during the Choson Dynasty, created these functional works of art. Large panels of draped silk, hemp and linen – embellished with images of Korean woman and other symbols of the past – are simultaneously contemporary in their graphic nature. Lee’s works connect past and present."

She will speak about her work Sunday July 19 at 1PM.
