Missionary Photography in Korea Opens Today at BUAG

Missionary Child with her Nanny's Daughter

The Boston University Art Gallery (BUAG) presents the largest ever exhibition of Korean missionary photographs in the United States, Missionary Photography in Korea: Encountering the West through Christianity.  A travelling show presented by The Korea Society, the exhibition documents the encounter between East and West which occurred in Korea during the late 19th century.  Missionary Photography captures the dawning of the new religious identities, culture clashes, and altered societal landscape of Korea which resulted from these Western Missions. The gallery is free and open to the public from today until 10/25.
