Earthly Splendor pairs examples of contemporary and historical Korean ceramics from the museum’s permanent collection to emphasize the material, stylistic and technical progression throughout history, allowing for direct comparison of the aesthetic transformations.

Through painting, sculpture, collage and installation, Aram’s work challenges traditional elements of art history and aims to disrupt its perceived hierarchy. By merging and equalizing the two forms, he reveals the often-downplayed role of non-Western art in developing modernism and its drive toward abstraction.
