Ha Chong-Hyun and Sungsic Moon Participate in Perfectly Imperfect: Korean Buncheong Ceramics at the Denver Art Museum, USA
Works by Ha Chong-Hyun and Sungsic Moon are currently being showcased as part of the special exhibition Perfectly Imperfect: Korean Buncheong Ceramics at the Denver Art Museum in Colorado, USA. Marking the first exhibition to be organized under the agreement with the National Museum of Korea to support the Denver Art Museum’s Korean Gallery, signed in December 2022, the exhibition illuminates the formative aesthetics of Korean art through the theme of Buncheong ceramics, a historical art form that bridges tradition and modernity.

The exhibition features more than 70 Korean Buncheong ceramics from the 15th century to the present, alongside modern and contemporary paintings and drawings that resonate with the unique expression of Buncheong ceramics. Among works displayed include the Dansaekhwa pioneer Ha Chong-Hyun’s Conjunction 93-005, in which the substantial materiality of bae-ap-bub, a method of pushing paint from the back to the front of the hemp cloth, connects with the imperfect, playful, and unconventional technique of Buncheong ceramics. In addition, 16 oil drawings by Sungsic Moon, created by scratching the thick oil paint surface with a pencil, establish a profound connection across time, echoing the intricately detailed techniques of Korean Buncheong ceramics. The exhibition continues until December 7, 2025.
