Bojagi (Korean wrapping cloths) are pieced together from small scraps of cloth. It is the most unique form of Korean textile art. Bojagi has occupied a prominent place in the daily lives of Koreans of all classes – used to wrap or carry everything from precious ritual objects to everyday clothes, common household goods, and to cover food. It is strikingly contemporary: the designs and colors of bojagi bring to mind the works of modern abstract artists. Bojagi can be described as a true form of abstract expressionism. Youngmin will also share many of her own bojagi works. NOTE: All lectures will take place in the Westin Peachtree Ballroom, approximately a 5-10 minute walk from the quilt show building.
