Young Min Moon

Landmark College hosts talk about contemporary Korean art on Feb. 28

The spring 2024 Landmark College Academic Speakers Series hosts artist Young Min Moon for a presentation entitled "The Aftereffects of War on Contemporary Korean Art" Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 5 p.m. in the Brooks M. O'Brien Auditorium/Lewis Academic Building.

"South Korean popular culture has taken the world by storm," say organizers, "from glamorous K-Pop bands to award-winning filmmakers as household names." However, many people are not aware of the influence of the Cold War on Korean culture and art. With the Cold War as context, Moon will introduce his own artwork and show how other contemporary South Korean artists navigate the difficult historical legacy of the Korean War and the two Koreas, North and South.
