Met Presents 2 K-Culture Events
Digital Buddha & Korea: From Silla to K-Pop in NYC
Digital Buddha

Met Museum Presents welcomes DIGITAL BUDDHA, a multimedia performance video with Jin Hi Kim (Komungo) and Gerry Hemingway (Percussion). Jin Hi Kim is highly praised as both an innovative komungo (Korean fourth century fretted board zither) virtuoso and for her cross-cultural compositions.

Also, Met curators Denise Leidy and Soyoung Lee investigate how ancient national treasures show up in modern TV series, such as Queen Seondeok of Silla, currently a huge hit in Asia. Playwright Young Jean Lee explores the life and work of her grandfather, a renowned Korean folklorist who was kidnapped when Young Jean’s mother was a small child, and never seen again.

Korea: From Silla to K-Pop

Korea: From Silla to K-Pop

With hit songs like Gangnam Style and controversial visitors such as Dennis Rodman, the art and politics of the Korean Peninsula have recently been capturing the world’s attention. Korea’s influence, however, began more than a thousand years ago with an ancient kingdom’s political intrigue and talented craftsmen. The Met’s golden treasures from the royal tombs of Silla offer tantalizing glimpses of court life and evidence of the cross-fertilization of cultures between Korea and its neighbors.

Met curators Denise Leidy and Soyoung Lee investigate how ancient national treasures show up in modern TV series, such as Queen Seondeok of Silla, currently a huge hit in Asia. Playwright Young Jean Lee explores the life and work of her grandfather, a renowned Korean folklorist who was kidnapped when Young Jean’s mother was a small child, and never seen again.

The Spark series explores vital ideas and issues through the lens of the Met’s collections. Each cabaret-style program gathers artists, thought leaders, and performers from theater, film, politics, literature, science, and pop culture to engage in wide-ranging, fresh conversations and performances. Spark is hosted by Julie Burstein, author and Peabody Award–winning creator of public radio’s Studio 360.

This program is in conjunction with the exhibition Silla: Korea’s Golden Kingdom, on view through February 23, 2014. The exhibition is organized by Soyoung Lee, Associate Curator, and Denise Leidy, Curator, both of the Department of Asian Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, in collaboration with colleagues at The National Museum of Korea and Gyeongju National Museum, Korea.
