In the wake of the France-Korea year in 2016 Teas and Temples from Korea by Claire Xuan is still topical…
When invited by the Musée National des Arts Asiatiques – The Guimet Museum in Paris during the exhibition Le thé à Guimet, histoire d’une boisson millénaire (Tea at Guimet, history of a thousand-year-old beverage) in 2013-2014, Claire Xuan presented her tenth portfolio (Teas and Temples from Korea). As part of the cultural activities linked to the exhibition, the museum scheduled a meeting with the artist in relation to the tea ritual in Korea as well as signing sessions of her work. In 2013, Claire Xuan also took part in the first edition of the Korean Spring Festival in Nantes, and in 2015 in Regards sur la Corée (Views on Korea) in Brittany.
She has regularly been invited to present her work by bookshops and book fairs in France and abroad.
