#var:page_name# cover

BFA Fine Arts presents Mindful Joint 2018, a two-day symposium which brings together artists, writers and curators from South Korea and the U.S. The symposium does not attempt to define what contemporary Korean art is, nor does present a unified history. Instead, the symposium assimilates practices of Korean artists to the conversations that are taking place around the world by matching professionals in the U.S. whose practices share similar interests. Mindful Joint 2018 offers a meeting point where similar yet different ideas gather together and open new ideas. Contemporary Korean art has been marginalized as an outsider of the hegemonic discourses of art. This symposium aims to break the generalized perception of the nation to understand the complexities of practices and cultural backgrounds. Unexpected connections will add new lines of narratives into the fabric of global conversations.

*This two-day symposium will take place in two locations.
