DESCRIPTION

In Grand Style: Celebrations in Korean Art during the Joseon Dynasty explores the cultural significance of celebrations during Korea’s Joseon dynasty (1392–1910). During this period, festivities marking rites of passage—birthdays, weddings, funerals, among others—followed elaborate protocols. In Grand Style features about 110 objects from 13 Korean institutions representing this tradition. The exhibition reveals the cultural and political significance at the core of the celebrations.
