Part of the SPAH Seminar Series, Eleanor Soo-ah Hyun (Associate Curator in the Asian Art Department) will be giving a seminar on Picturing Possession, Korean Munbangdo Paintings.
Eleanor Soo-ah Hyun is the Associate Curator for Korean art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Prior to The Met, she was a curator at the British Museum from 2015-19. She is from New York City and is a PhD candidate at the University of Chicago. Her dissertation is on 18th-century Korean and Chinese art.
This talk focuses on Munbangdo, a Korean painting genre that emerged during the Joseon dynasty (1392-1910). The talk introduces the different types of Munbangdo and, through the lens of iconography and style, explores issues of representation and socio-cultural environment of late Joseon Korea.
