Confucianism has endured for centuries as a pivotal ideology in East Asia. However, it has also served to marginalize women. The Offering Table features the works of three female artists, Junwha Rhu, Miran Je and Insun Ha.
They explore issues of oppression and isolation in a rigidly Confucian society, and seek to define a long-repressed identity for women in contemporary Korea.
The exhibit will be on view concurrently with Confucius: Shaping Values through Art, which examines and illuminates the teachings and vast influence of Confucianism in China and East Asia.
This exhibition is co-sponsored by Mike and Sookie Garrison and Korean Cultural Center in Los Angeles.
