New to the NGV: Korean Moon Jar

Fri 2 Oct, 12pm

Harmony with nature, simplicity, spontaneity and everyday life have informed a distinct Korean aesthetic throughout history. Encapsulating these traditions of art and minimalism is the unadorned white surface of a moon jar.

To establish the first overview of Korean art in Australia, the NGV has recently made several important acquisitions including a rare eighteenth century moon jar.

Hear more about its significance and other recent Korean acquisitions from NGV Curators Wayne Crothers and Annika Aitken.
