Poem 88 is pleased to present new works by five Korean-American artists. The title of the show, Blue Willow, is also the name of a blue and white porcelain pattern created in Great Britain in the 18th century at the beginning of a renewed interest in Chinoiserie and Asian culture. Based on blue and white porcelain-ware exported from China, Blue Willowis an entirely Western fabrication. Likewise, the five artists in the exhibition at Poem 88, in varying degrees allude to their Korean heritage while creating works that are entirely new, incorporating aspects of Contemporary and Modernist principles.
