35 KOREAN MULTIMEDIA ARTISTS SHOWCASE ‘SOCIAL CHANGE’ THROUGH CONTEMPORARY ART
After highlighting Korean sensibilities and aesthetics inside a modern home, this time, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea and the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines has now teamed up with Korean Contemporary Artists Association (KCAA) for another multimedia exhibition.
Launched last November 28, the ‘Korean Contemporary Artists Association Exhibition 2019,’ will run until February 28, 2020 at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila. The exhibit came to the country as one of integral parts of the art and cultural festivities celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Philippine and Korean bilateral relations and the ASEAN-Republic of Korea Commemorative Summit.
Some 17 artists, out of the 35 exemplary artists who participated in the exhibition, including KCAA Chairman Shin Cheol-kyun especially flew to the Philippines to take part in the opening reception, which was attended by Ambassador HAN Dong-man of the Republic of Korea.
In his congratulatory speech, Ambassador HAN praised the artists’ creativity and emphasized how contemporary art reflects social change. With the theme 'Korean Contemporary Art Today,’ the exhibition featured paintings, sculptures and installations that presented a unique cultural identity of Korea that offers an alternative and deeper perspective about Korea and its people. Ambassador HAN hopes that the exhibit would also pave the way to foster a deeper relationship between the Filipinos and Koreans through the language of visual arts.
Organized by the Embassy of the Republic of Korea and the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines together with Korean Contemporary Artists Association and Metropolitan Museum of Manila, “Korean Contemporary Artists’ Association Exhibition 2019” will be running from until February 28, 2020 at the Galeriya Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, Metropolitan Museum of Manila.
