"Perception is an evolving, learning-on-the-job process. It thrives on new input and on education, which is what a prolonged and repeated experience of art, particularly unfamiliar art, is.

Now it's time for other institutions to pick up the torch."(NYTimes | Arts | Korean Art, Serenely Unconcerned, Finally Gets a Chance to Shine)
