Pretty Pottery 

Wednesday, Sep 21 2011
“Poetry in Clay: Korean Buncheong Ceramics from Leeum” is a major new special exhibition at the Asian Art Museum, replacing the popular Bali show. Today’s Buncheong Symposium digs deep into the history and significance of this pale, printed form of functional sculpture. Kim Youngwon from the National Research Institute of Korea and Drs. John Duncan and Robert Mowry provide background, including a discussion of buncheong’s relationship to its famous predecessor, celadon. Bringing the conversation into the present, Kyungja Hwang (who’s done major studies in Seoul and New York City) discusses the effects on contemporary Korean artists, especially potters; the museum’s own Korean art curator Hyonjeong Kim Han moderates.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
