Now on view, "Beyond Line: The Art of Korean Writing" is the first exhibition held outside of Asia to focus on the history of writing and calligraphy in Korea. This exhibition, organized both conceptually and chronologically, explores the role of calligraphy in different strata of Korean society over nearly two millennia. Due to the rarity of several of the international loans, "Beyond Line" will only be on view at LACMA—making this a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The carved figure of a boy attendant was a common sight in Buddhist temples of the Joseon dynasty in Korea. Although typically created for a religious setting, this boy also embodies folk arts traditions of Korea. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ See “Wooden Boy Attendant,” 18th century in the Hammer Building, floor 2.
