About the Book
ArtXchange Gallery presents “Tradition Unwrapped: Korean Bojagi &
Joomchi Now,” an exciting look at Korean craft traditions that have
evolved into stunning contemporary art, featuring work by Chunghie Lee, a
bojagi artist and Jiyoung Chung, a joomchi artist. Lee and Chung find rich
inspiration in the textile and papermaking traditions of their native country,
Korea. In addition, work by contemporary artists from Korea will be exhibited

Design. This comprehensive exhibit gives viewers an overview of the diverse
styles, techniques, and innovations being created by contemporary artists
around the world working with bojagi and joomchi techniques.
