ACF 486: Masks of Night exhibition opens at The Korea Society (NY) tonight

Masks of Night
Faces from Traditional Korean Dance-Dramas

Just a reminder that the Opening Reception for The Korea Society's exhibition of masks used in Korean dance-dramas will be tonight, Thursday, March 4th, 2010 from 6:00 - 8:30 PM.

Evolved from ancient shamanic rituals into a form of popular theater, these dance-dramas were performed both at the Korean royal court and throughout the countryside. The exhibition will run from March 4th through May 28th, 2010. The gallery should prove perfect for an intimate experiencing of these objects from Korea's cultural past.

Also keep in mind that next month, on Thursday, April 1st, 2010, there will be a Gallery Talk entitled Korean Masked Dance-Drama: Enchanted Fertility Rite and Social Satire. Theresa Ki-ja Kim, Professor Emeritus, Department of theatre Arts, SUNY Stony Brook, will speak on "how Korea's unique tradition of masked dance-dramas masterfully blended fertility rite, social satire, and popular entertainment."
