Artist Talk & Demo: The Art of Korean Paper
Wednesday, August 18 • 4–6pm CT • virtual
hosted by Minnesota Center for Book Arts
Join us for an artist talk and demonstration with Aimee Lee, an artist, papermaker, writer, and the leading hanji (Korean handmade paper) researcher and practitioner in North America. While studying papermaking in the US, Aimee noticed a gap in paper history and decided to research, learn, and teach Korean papermaking to fill that gap. She will show examples of her artwork featuring hanji in her presentation and demonstrate the ancient papercraft of noyeokgae, known colloquially as jiseung, the process of cording and twining hanji.
Aimee Lee (she/her) is an artist, papermaker, writer, and the leading hanji researcher and practitioner in North America. Her Fulbright research on Korean paper led to her award-winning book, Hanji Unfurled (The Legacy Press), and the first-ever American hanji studio, located in Cleveland. Lee’s work is exhibited and collected internationally and she teaches and lectures all over the world.
