Korean American Coalition of Washington is sponsoring a visit to the Seattle Asian Art Museum to visit Seattle's first ever contemporary art exhibit from South Korea's National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. In collaboration with PuPPy, a local tech user group, KAC-WA has arranged for a docent-led tour.
You must purchase discount tickets here to participate in the tour. Space is limited to the first 30 people who sign up. Please arrive at 1:50pm to begin the tour.
This will be the first major exhibition of Korean contemporary art in Seattle. In collaboration with Ms. Choi Eunju, former chief curator of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, and the first in-residence visiting curator sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation at the Seattle Art Museum, SAM will present six leading-edge Korean contemporary artists’ representative works in this exhibition.
These works range from mixed-media installation and video art, to photography, all of which are prominent forms in Korean contemporary art. Each work in its own way addresses an important, often poignant, issue, and yet, as a group, all the works address paradoxes in Korean art and society.
