“Operating under a relatively new democracy in South Korea, artists experienced a burst of creative energy and freedom of expression in recent decades,” said curator Anne Tucker in a statement. “The photographers in Chaotic Harmony observe the country’s notable growth in terms of industry and urbanization and convey the resultant issues as well as reflect on the country’s ancient culture and religions.”

The exhibit, “Chaotic Harmony: Contemporary Korean Photography” is running now through Jan. 3. It explores Korea through five themes: land and sea, urbanization and globalization, family, friends and memory, cultural and personal identity, and anxiety.

Admission is $7 for adults, $3.50 for children and seniors, and free for kids under 5. For more information call (713) 639-7300 or visit www.mfah.org.
