Yeesookyung has work featured in the USC Pacific Asia Museum’s exhibition Reshaping Tradition, the museum’s first contemporary survey looking at contemporary artists utilizing traditional ceramics in their conceptual practices. The featured artists continue this exploration of clay, creating stunningly diverse works that touch upon personal, global, political, and aesthetic issues. Juxtaposed with examples from the Museum’s permanent collection representing significant ceramics traditions in East Asia, the contemporary works in this exhibition illustrate how artists today employ their traditions as springboards for countless innovations, creating works that speak to today’s audiences.
Participating artists include are Ai Weiwei (China), Ik-joong Kang (Korea), Liu Jianhua (China), Ah Xian (China), Yeesookyung (Korea), Harumi Nakashima (Japan), and Bui Cong Khanh (Vietnam). The work is on view through January 31, 2016. More information on the USC Pacific Asia Museum site including a series of special events and taks.
