19 River Road South, Putney, VT

South Korean popular culture has taken the world by storm, from glamorous K-pop bands to award-winning filmmakers as household names. However, many people are not aware of the darker 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.

Young Min Moon is an artist, critic, and Distinguished Professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst; a Guggenheim Fellow and Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant recipient whose work reflects his migration across cultures and the hybrid nature of identities forged amid the complex historical and political relationships between Asia and North America.

Events take place in the Brooks M. O’Brien Auditorium/Lewis Academic Building, and are free and open to the public
