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.
Colors have always been with us in our lives. All kinds of colors - natural colors like the blue sky, green fields and flaming sunsets, ones for social consensus such as traffic control signals and various warning signs, those which stand for nations or institutions, and those adorning the moments of birth and death - are very precious to shape our lives.
Contemporary art sometimes stimulates the curiosity of audiences by puzzling them. Sometimes it is so difficult to understand that it makes the audience – one who would otherwise appreciate it – give up. At times it is hard to know the meaning of the work without hearing the purpose of the work directly from the artist, curator, or docent. The moment an artwork is out of the artist’s hands, the interpretation and appreciation of an artwork is given over to an audience, however audiences are still curious about the real intentions behind the work.
The 2010 New Acquisitions exhibition for Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art, presented under the title, "Closer to Contemporary Art", features 30 Works Collected throughout the last year. The works collected during 2010 reflect the guiding principle of the Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art, which seeks to represent Korean artworks of historic significance, and Works made since 1990 that reflect new paradigms and visions of the future of Korean contemporary art. At the same time, invaluable efforts were made to collect works that were considered friendly to the public, and these works will be presented in the museum's outdoor spaces.
