Abstract

I have been invited to participate in the Pacific Rim Art Festival: Special Exhibition for the commemoration of Goma Art Center, Korea. Events include a special exhibition and an opening ceremony, in addition to a visiting artist presentation at Gong-Ju University. The exhibition is a significant event which contributes to create a market and to expand arts nationally as well as displays cultural ability of Gongju, Korea internationally. The event invigorates arts exchange by inviting the international artists and by introducing various contents about arts of Gongju, Korea. The special exhibition for opening commemoration with the theme Adventures of Goma displays about 60 art works of the artists from South Korea, China, Japan and Australia. It will be an opportunity to learn about inheritance of tradition of regional art in Gongju, Korea, modernization of tradition, the application of the future of regional art. This is the exhibition to show diversity from tradition to modern trend of 4 countries by participating of outstanding artists. The special exhibition will give an opportunity to identify an image of this era that we are living in now by examining psychological, cultural and social phenomenon of contemporary in South Korea, China, Japan and Australia in an aesthetical and sometimes paradoxical view through artists. (Goma Art Center Special Exhibition: Programs,Theme: Adventures of the Goma page 3) I will be participating in this international event by exhibiting my work and giving a presentation about the GVSU Ceramics program. And also, as a resident artist, I intend to broaden the Ceramics curriculum based on research gathered during my residency regarding not only traditional but also contemporary Korean ceramic art.
