"Wrapping Traditions: Korean Textiles Now" Docent Tour by Barbara Shapiro, MOCFA - SF (7/28)
Reminder for TEXTILE ARTS COUNCIL members:
PRIVATE DOCENT GUIDED TOUR of "Wrapping Traditions: Korean Textiles Now" Museum of Craft & Folk Art, San Francisco July 28, 2011 – 1 PM
TAC Advisory Board member and MOCFA docent Barbara Shapiro will lead a small group through this remarkable exhibition. Curated by Chungie Lee, the exhibition looks at traditional Bojagi(Bo-Jah-ki) wrapping cloths and the ways this craft is interpreted today by contemporary artists from Korea and ten other countries (including work by Ms. Shapiro). Traditionally used in formal ceremonies and many daily activities, and fashioned from pieced cloth or paper, contemporary Bojagi varies in medium, size and function. These inspired reinterpretations have transcended borders.
The cost for this special members’ event is $20.00, which includes admission to the Museum of Folk and Craft Art. A portion of your fee benefits the Textile Arts Council.
