Ten years ago, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, established the first dedicated Arts of Korea gallery in the Southwest. The permanent space for Korean art was installed with exclusive loans from the National Museum of Korea. The occasion was further celebrated with a commission by contemporary artist Byron Kim, who explored the tonalities of Korean ceramics in his triptych, Flight of the Kingfisher.

Join Byron Kim and the Museum’s Arts of Asia curatorial staff for a discussion about shifts and evolutions in Korean and Korean American art over the past decade, and how these changes have affected Houston.

This program is free! Drop in to participate in this event, which takes place on the mezzanine level of the Beck Building. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.


This program is hosted by the Friends of Asian Art at the MFAH.
