#CMAchaekgeori Inspired “Shelfie” Submissions!
The CMA’s exhibition Chaekgeori: Pleasure of Possessions in Korean Painted Screens, on view through November 5, showcases a unique type of Korean still-life painting called chaekgeori (pronounced check-oh-ree), translated as “books and things.” These paintings depict bookshelves lined with artfully arranged scholarly objects, exotic luxuries, symbolic flowers, and gourmet delicacies.
During the exhibition’s final weeks, we invited our followers to share a “shelfie” by posting an image of their own bookshelf on social media with the hashtag #CMAchaekgeori! Check out the submissions below, and see the exhibition, on view through this Sunday!
