Pottery Exhibition to Commemorate Choson Artisans to be HeldAn exhibition featuring the ceramic art of Kyushu, Japan, which was initiated by the forced migration of 80 artisans from Korea's Choson Dynasty during the Hideyoshi Invasion of Korea about 400 years ago, will be held.
The '2001 Korea World Ceramic Exposition Organizing Community', the Ceramic Research Institute of Hong Ik University, and the Fukuoka Ceramic Artists Association will co-hold a special pottery exhibition, titled 'Return of Korean Ceramic Art in Kyushu', at To Art Space in Sinsa-dong, Seoul, from September 3 to 10.
During the exhibition, a workshop and seminar will be held from September 7 to 9 at Hong Ik University, where Korean and Japanes artists' pottery-making process will be opened to the public.
The Japanese artists participating in the exhibition are the successors of early Choson ceramic artists, such as Shim Su-kwan and Lee Sam-pyong.
Another exchange exhibition will be held in February 2000 in Fukuoka, Japan.
