Beyond Line: The Art of Korean Writing

Implementation of a temporary, single-site exhibition on the art and history of Korean calligraphy.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) requests an implementation grant of $100,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to support Beyond Line: The Art of Korean Writing, a temporary exhibition on view from May 26 to September 15, 2019. As the very first comprehensive exhibition to examine the history of Korean calligraphy ever organized in the United States, Beyond Line will include approximately 170 works of art spanning nearly two millennia—many of which are national treasures and important cultural properties owned by Korean cultural institutions that rarely leave the country. It will be accompanied by an extensive array of didactic materials and a full complement of interpretive humanities and educational programs, along with a fully illustrated 528-page catalogue,that will introduce both an American and international audience to a vital element of Korean art and history through objects of undisputed quality and appeal.
