Korea’s modern age was a time that connected premodern times with the world we live in today. In Korea, it was a time when the country went through rapid changes due to the spread of foreign culture after the opening of its ports to foreign nations. The deconstruction of traditional society had only begun when an imperialist invasion followed, shaking Korean society to its core before it had even started to understand the implications of an open-door policy with other countries. Korean artists during this period created a new era in modern art by reinterpreting the notion of art, which had been introduced to Korea as part of a new sense of culture in the midst of the tumult connected to the modern age, from their own perspective. This exhibition consists of paintings and sculptures that depict the lives and dreams of people from this era and is organized under five sub-themes: “Everyday Life,” “Atelier,” “Family,” “Modern Landscape,” and “Dreams and Utopia.” From the Japanese ruling era (1910-1945) to the period before the exploration of contemporary art began-when Korea was liberated after World War II-the exhibition allows viewers to better understand the major developments which took place with Korea’s modern art.
