Join for an exploration of the Spencer Museum of Art’s 2020 Common Work of Art. Translated Vase, 2007, by South Korean artist Yeesookyung 李受俓 (b.1963), is a ceramic sculpture, made of reassembled pieces that asks us to consider what it means to create, to repair, and to transform. In a 2018 interview, the artist cited a desire to celebrate “the vulnerability of the object and ultimately myself.”  Discussion hosted by Celka Straughn, Deputy Director for Public Practice, Curatorial and Research, Andrew W. Mellon Director of Academic Programs and Ashley Offill, Andrew W. Mellon Curricular and Digital Projects Coordinator..
