Symbolism and Simplicity: Korean Art from the Won-Kyung Cho Collection

Symbolism and Simplicity, drawn from the collection of Dr. Won-Kyung Cho of New York, provides a rare opportunity to view and gain appreciation for Korean art. Ninety paintings and porcelains dating from the 16th to the 20th century are included in the exhibition.

January 23 through March 7, 1999
Masami Teraoka: From Tradition to Technology, the Floating World Comes of Age

For more than 20 years, Masami Teraoka has created watercolors that mimic the style and conventions of 19th-century Japanese woodblock prints as they satirize the clash between Eastern and Western cultures or draw attention to social issues such as the destruction of the environment and the ravages of AIDS. During an extended visit to Europe in 1992, Teraoka found a darker model for his AIDS-related works: Northern Renaissance art, particularly the hallucinatory visions of Hieronymus Bosch. "From Tradition to Technology" includes 35 painting and presents a retrospective of the artist's work to date.

March 15 through April 4
