DESCRIPTION

Celebrate the richness of Korean culture—art, food, music, fashion and more—at the Asian Art Museum’s 7th annual Korea Day. Enjoy live performances, gallery tours, art-making activities, food tastings and other experiences inspired by traditional and contemporary Korean culture.

This year, you’ll meet Korean American artists, chefs and musicians who explore their identities through their work. For the festival’s feature performance, classically trained duo KABAM, who interpret Korean folk music through a contemporary lens, will collaborate with a visual artist and electronic musician to create a unique multi-sensory experience. You can also view art by contemporary Korean artists in the special exhibition First Look, enjoy guided tours of the Korean art galleries and learn how tradition continues to impact modern life.
