The exhibition highlights traditional textile techniques of Korean artists and the true meaning of bojagi along with the modern reinterpretations of this centuries old family tradition. 

The opening reception event will include guest presentations by Lee Talbot, curator of Eastern Hemisphere Collections at the Textile Museum in Washington D.C. entitled “Bojagi in Cultural Context”, and guest curator Chunghie Lee entitled “Bojagi Today.” Guest are invited to join the artists and presenters for a light Korean reception and gallery viewing afterward. 

Bojagi (보자기), a traditional Korean wrapping cloth, is a centuries old Korean folk tradition that utilizes patchwork textiles for both everyday use and ceremonial purposes. Bojagi are traditionally hand-made by women in the domestic realm to fulfill a practical need for wrapping items to carry, but also artistic expression. In recent years, the technique has gained interest outside Korea due to the popularity of handmade crafts, use of recycled materials, do-it-yourself activities, and sustainability in textiles and contemporary art.

A free RSVP is required to attend the opening reception event (scroll down to RSVP).
