Co-organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Seoul Museum of Craft Art, Gold Needles: Embroidery Arts from Korea celebrates anonymous women artists and their inventive creations that triumphed over the conventions of the patriarchal Joseon society.

Through stunning examples of embroidery and patchwork—including an embroidered folding screen with Ten Longevity Symbols on loan from the DIA—this exhibition explores Korean embroidered works of art as tools of empowerment to overcome social and cultural constraints.

Join CMA Curator Sooa Im McCormick on a virtual tour and insider’s view of this pathbreaking exhibition to learn more about the contributions of women artists in Joseon Korea.
