On Wednesday, March 28, 2018, we will host our first seminar of 2018. Dr. Oug-Ja Kim will give a talk about "North Korean Artists and North Korean Art Before and After the Korean War" at Global Leadership Foundation (GLF), located at 46-20 Parsons Blvd, Flushing, NY 11355. The seminar will begin at 6:40 PM and end at 8:20 PM. This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be available starting at 6:40.

Dr. Kim will talk about the stories of two groups of Korean painters who ended up taking different paths during the turmoil in the Korean peninsula after Korean independence from Japan, which was followed shortly thereafter by the division of Korea into North and South. One group of artists moved to the south, while the other migrated to the north. She will also broadly discuss the political history of North Korea while explaining the role played by North Korean painters (who moved from the south) in the formation of North Korean art history.

Dr. Oug-Ja Kim has conducted research on education and the culture of North Korea, with a focus on the North Korean power elite. In particular, her doctoral dissertation examined the background and cultivation of North Korean power elites by focusing on Mankyung Revolutionary Academy. Dr. Kim is currently one of our visiting scholars at the Research Center for Korean Community at Queens College.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this interesting talk. Once again, thank you for your continued support and interest.
