Wrapping Traditions: Korean Textiles Now

The San Francisco Museum of Craft and Folk Art will be hosting an exhibit on bojagi. From the web site:

Wrapping Traditions: Korean Textiles Now brings together contemporary artists from Korea, and ten other countries that are inspired by this Korean folk art. Unlike the traditional form, Contemporary Bojagi varies in medium, size, and functions to create a new meaning that transcends borders. Wrapping Traditions: Korean Textiles Now explores both traditional Bojagi, and its multiple reinterpretations in contemporary art.

I can't wait to see the exhibit and have been looking forward to this for months. The photos from the press release look fantastic.
