A Zoom Meeting with Youngmin Lee on Bojagi, The Art of Wrapping Cloths

Zoom Meeting

Our second Zoom lecture features textile artist Youngmin Lee, who will introduce us to the art of Bojagi, Korean wrapping cloths. Pieced together from small scraps of cloth, Bojagi occupies a prominent place in the daily lives of Koreans. They are used to wrap or carry everything from precious ritual objects to everyday clothes and common household goods and also to cover food. They can also be strikingly contemporary, with designs and colors reminiscent of modern abstract art. Youngmin Lee will talk about bojagi during this virtual lecture and show her own bojagi from her studio. Learn more about Youngmin here. Register here for this Zoom meeting. You’ll get email instructions for joining the meeting both two days in advance and again two hours before the start time of 7 p.m. Please share the link with friends; it’s free to all.
