” ‘Five Buddhas: A Korean Icon’s Journey through Time’ will open at the @portlandartmuseum on September 3. The exhibition is dedicated to a single work of art, “Five Buddhas,” an 18th century painting stolen from the Songgwangsa temple in Korea. The show will chronicle the discovery, restoration, and restitution of the work, which will be repatriated to Korea after it closes.” This and more in #ArtMovements, our weekly roundup of news and stirrings in the art world.
