This exhibition highlights the rich culture of Korean hat fashion a century ago by
showcasing various hats, including those that differentiated class, occupation, age,
marriage status, special occasion, and season of the year.
Brooklyn-based Korean American artist Jongil Ma revives the Charles B. Wang Center's
outdoor garden with architecturally woven sculptures, using varying lengths and types
of thin wooden strips, both in their raw state and dyed in color.
Located on the first floor, in between the meeting rooms 101 and 102 at the Charles
B. Wang Center, this Japanese rock garden (枯山水
karesansui) was created by Gerard Senese and his wife Hiroko Uraga-Senese as a tribute to the
appreciation of Japanese culture.
White, flat, dreamlike spaces, serving as thresholds between the inner, subjective
self and the external, physical world, were a subject that fascinated the South Korea-based
project group GREEM (a name that literally translates to “picture” in Korean).
