Some/One: Do Ho Suh’s Dog-tag Sculpture
/ Curator of Japanese and Korean Art
Some/One, a larger-than-life sculpture by the Korean artist Do Ho Suh, debuted at the Seattle Asian Art Museum in February 2020 when the museum reopened after a transformative renovation. It is the anchor work in the inaugural exhibition Be/Longing: Contemporary Asian Art. This conversation will talk about why and how this “dog-tag” sculpture was created, and its significance in the artist’s career. A time-lapse video of its installation will offer a special behind-the-scenes look at its construction.
