Diamond Mountains: Poets Respond to Korean Art

Mar 23, 2018 | 6:00 pm

Mount Geumgang Viewed from Danbal Ridge by Jeong Seon

Poets Amanda Calderon and Michael Leong read works in response to The Met’s exhibition Diamond Mountains: Travel and Nostalgia in Korean Art, featuring artwork from the 18th century to the present inspired by what may be the most famous and emotionally resonant site on the Korean peninsula—The Diamond Mountains. The region’s location in what is today North Korea has kept it largely inaccessible in modern times.
