Mindful Joint 2018: Contemporary Korean Art in Conversations

April 2 - April 3, 2018
All Day Event


Mindful Joint brings together artists, writers, and curators from South Korea and the U.S.

The symposium does not attempt to define what contemporary Korean art is, nor does present a unified history. Instead, the symposium assimilates practices of Korean artists to the conversations that are taking place around the world by matching professionals in the U.S. whose practices share similar interests.

Mindful Joint 2018 offers a meeting point where similar yet different ideas gather together and open new ideas. Contemporary Korean art has been marginalized as an outsider of the hegemonic discourses of art. This symposium aims to break the generalized perception of the nation to understand the complexities of practices and cultural backgrounds. Unexpected connections will add new lines of narratives into the fabric of global conversations.


Sponsored by the University of Chicago's Department of Visual Arts and Open Practice Committee, Department of Art History, Center for the Art of East Asia, Smart Museum of Art, and UChicago Arts
