Now that spring has arrived, it’s time to embark on exciting travels across the country. There are numerous things you can do visit amusement parks, go to the beach, and smell some fresh blooms. However, if you are like me and have an artsy side, then you know spring exhibitions are the best. Here are two spring exhibitions at the Busan Museum of Contemporary Art you won’t want to miss!
The first exhibition I’d like to share with you is titled 새로운 매개들 which translates to New Mediums. The fact that this exhibition is free just adds to the incentive to go. The exhibition will run from March 1st to July 10th. Even if you don’t plan to visit Busan until the summer, you’ll have enough time to see the exhibition.
Now, I’d like to give you some background information on the first of our Busan spring exhibitions. The exhibition’s central topic is the dynamic growth of media art around the world, towards the end of the twentieth century.
Then the exhibition will look at fresh attempts at local art, as well as the history and evolution of Busan media art, which first debuted in the 2000s. With the passage of time, the tendency of modern art began to expand, and new changes in the Busan arts began to emerge.
Young Busan artists use a variety of media to create their work, including computers, videos, the internet, and cameras. This has a significant impact on the art world as it merges traditional styles with modern technology.
The exhibition will feature early 2000s works as well as reproductions, along with summaries of the artists’ activities and working environments. In total, 14 artists from Busan will take part in the exhibition.
Some highlights include Time for a cigarette, an image installation piece in which an image is projected onto a three-dimensional object. Then, Garden of Lights is a video work in which natural lighting is used.
An Exhibition With Little Information
The second exhibition I’d like to highlight is one of a kind. It is called An Exhibition With Little Information, or 거의정보가없는 전시. This exhibition’s story, in my opinion, was fantastic. In today’s society, only the artist’s qualifications matter, such as how many followers they have and who they know. That is instead of actually judging the work on its own.
It was fantastic how the exhibition kept everything anonymous with only a few details, allowing everyone to have a genuine reaction to each piece.
The exhibition doesn’t include critical information such as the artist’s name, the title of the artwork, the year of creation, or any sort of background on the artist or the work. This was all done in the hopes that viewers will be able to come up with their own interpretations and see the work as a single piece.
QR codes are printed on pamphlets for individuals who want to learn more about the artists and the purpose of the artwork. So that if you come across an artwork you like, you can quickly scan the QR code to learn more about the artist and see if they create other works.
This exhibition, in my opinion, is ideal for those who are new to contemporary art. The exhibition is also perfect for visiting as a family to introduce your children to arts.
