Liminal Space: Bringing Art to the DMZ

with artist Sammy Lee

The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea was established in the Korean Armistice Agreement in 1953. It is a space "between" and an "in-between" space. It is a liminal space.

In spring 2018, the Korean peninsula captured the world's attention with the historic intra-Korean summit and U.S.-Korea summit. At the same time, an art exhibition took place quietly in the DMZ Museum on the South Korea side of the divide.

This exhibition was a project developed by the Artnauts Collective, an American art collective founded by CU Boulder professor George Rivera, which seeks to create dialogue about the human condition in places of international contention.

The works in the exhibit reflected personal, social, and political perspectives in what “liminal space” means to American artists.

Sammy Lee, a Korean-American artist who participated in the exhibit, will talk about the art, Artnauts, and the artists' experience being a part of this inaugural American exhibition at the DMZ Museum.

Free to AAA members; teachers, students and docents $5; DAM members $7; others $10.

Admission fee is for lecture only, not general admission to the museum.
