• G-Live : Fabien & Taeyoung Close
    • Period/ 2016.07.07(Thu) ~ 2016.09.18(Sun)

    Contemporary art in the 21st century considers even the process of producing art as a complete work it itself. It is true that 20th century art took place as if throwing a completed work of art at the viewers, with the practice of which we had become familiar. There had been discussions of “Non-Museum” in opposition to such a limited way of conveying art in the 1960s and 1970s, but it was difficult to challenge the absolute definition of art that originated from the fear of dominant space of the ‘art gallery.’ Such logic should be seen more as the result of social binds generated by the written law, limited to the specific space of the ‘art gallery,’ rather than the uncanny sense of distance one feels in gazing upon a work of art that has been completed by the hands of the artist.

    Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art (GMOMA) is pleased to present Story Blossoms in Art, an exhibition collated from the collections of 39 museums located in Gyeonggi-do Province on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the opening of GMOMA. Gyeonggi-do Province is the richest art repository, where 50 out of the 190 registered Korean art museums are located. While 11 of them are public institutions, most of them are private museums that were established by art lovers and enthusiasts, in order to share their joy of living with works of art. It was this passion for art that has nurtured the museum culture in Gyeonggi-do Province despite the tough conditions for sustaining it. And now, the museum culture exists not only as a public asset of the province that residents and visitors can enjoy, but also as a valuable cultural heritage to pass down to next generations.

  • Photographic Images and Matter: Japanese Prints of the 1970s Close
    • Period/ 2016.02.02(Tue) ~ 2016.04.03(Sun)

    Photographic Images and Matter: Japanese Prints of the 1970s focuses on print expressions from the 1970s as seen in the work of 14 artists who helped develop a print movement in the world of Japanese contemporary art. While on the one hand the period is notable as the golden age of works in which photographic images were converted into prints, the 1970s also saw the rise of a new print movement in which a strong emphasis was placed on allowing materials(matter) used in print-making, such as print blocks, paper, and ink, to speak for themselves. These subjective expressions, based on photographic images and matter, greatly expanded the print medium while also helping to shape trends in contemporary art as a whole.
