Winter Art Exhibitions in Seoul this December 2020

Hello again! We’re back to Level 2 social distancing in Seoul, but fortunately, some museums are still open (for now). The rollercoaster of openings and closings won’t end anytime soon. Meanwhile, it’s getting colder and colder each day, so it may be a great time to plan some indoor art activities. Here are some suggestions to fill those dreary December days with some bright artworks in Seoul!

Some of the highlights this month include Basquiat at Lotte Museum, Rose Wylie and Yue Minjun at Hangaram Art Museum, and Matisse at MyArtMuseum. Keep scrolling for more details!

UPDATE : Seoul will be under Level 2.5 restrictions starting Tuesday, December 8th, 2020 and continue for the next three weeks. What does that mean for art museums? According to this article by Korea Times, state-run museums — including small and big art facilities — will be temporarily closed.

Coronavirus Restrictions at Museums in Seoul

As always during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, don’t forget to bring your face mask! Many art museums and galleries in Seoul will deny entry if you don’t wear one.

There is almost always a temperature check upon entry to the exhibition, so please make sure to stay home if you have a fever.

Though not always required, it also doesn’t hurt to make a reservation in advance due to COVID-19 restrictions. Links to the art museum and exhibition will be listed where you will find more information on making a reservation.

You may also have to sign up for a Naver or Kakao account, download the app, and scan your QR code upon entry to some establishments to verify your identity. If you’re having difficulty with the app, you may be able to get by at the museum by supplying your name, address, and phone number instead as there is usually a paper sign-in sheet available.

Here is a guide from Naver and Kakao regarding scanning your QR code at entry due to COVID-19. You can use the Google Translate plugin on your Chrome browser to translate the page into English. It’s best to prepare this in advance!

Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything

Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything exhibition at Gallery Baton

Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything is on display at Gallery Baton (116 Dokseodang-ro, Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, South Korea) from November 26th, 2020 to January 8th, 2021.

Gallery Baton is pleased to announce “Connect with Everything”, a solo exhibition by Tatsuo Miyajima b.1957 who is one of the international figures of contemporary art, from 26th November 2020 to 8th January 2021. This exhibition will provide a great opportunity to experience the wide spectrum of his overall artistic career including not only his representative LED (Light Emitting Diodes) work series but his recent paintings. Miyajima’s media practice transcends visual functionality of electronic materials including LED and IC and converts them into his authentic formative language. Especially, after his solo exhibition at Santa Barbara Museum of Art in 2019, the first major museum presentation in the US, he currently participates in “STARS”, a group exhibition of six most prominent Japanese contemporary artists at Mori Art Museum and “Chronicle 1995–2020”, a solo exhibition at Chiba City Museum of Art. In this situation in which the global art world pays considerable attention to his activities, it is meaningful to have his solo exhibition in Seoul at Gallery Baton.

Hong Jiyon: Refresh

Hong Jiyon: Refresh Art Exhibition in Seoul via Gallery 2

Hong Jiyon’s exhibition, Refresh, will be on view at Gallery 2 (204 Pyeongchang-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul, Korea) from November 26th, 2020 to December 26th, 2020.

Why are there a pair of gloves dropped on a street, its owner unknown? The paradox and absurdity of this strange situation and its vestiges, the temporary situation, gap between language and reality, what I know perceived as real, and how it is not the truth. Jiyon Hong’s works are vessels of her emotion, humor, and doubts. They culminate into a question and answer of the self, reality, and the why of self-denial.

Jean-Michel Othoniel: New Works

Jean Michel Othoniel via Kukje Gallery

Jean Michel Othoniel’s New Works will be on view at Kukje Gallery (54 Samcheong-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, 03053) from December 17th, 2020 to January 31st, 2021.

Jenny Holzer: IT’S CRUCIAL TO HAVE AN ACTIVE FANTASY LIFE

Jenny Holzer via Kukje Gallery

Jenny Holzer’s exhibition, “It’s Crucial to Have an Active Fantasy Life”, will be on view at Kukje Gallery (54 Samcheong-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, 03053) from December 10th, 2020 to January 31st, 2021.

As a private citizen, Jenny Holzer is a woman of few words. As a very public artist–and it is hard to imagine another contemporary American artist whose visual productions have been so publicly accessible–she is a woman of a million words. Words, in fact, are the marrow of the 61-year-old Ohio-born artist’s large-scale, technology-driven productions. Thirty-six years after Holzer moved to New York City, and abruptly turned away from traditional painting to focus on the far more intricate substance of language, her loaded use of mottoes, phrases, verses, and quotations have appeared on T-shirts and posters, marble benches, and condom wrappers, have been light-projected onto the facades of government, corporate, and community buildings around the globe, and perhaps most memorably, have crawled and blinked across red-light LED screens.

Yue Minjun, A-Maze-Ing Laughter of Our Times!

Rolling on the Grass by Yue Minjun, 2009 via SAC

This is the first large-scale exhibition in Korea by Yue Minjun, a leading Chinese contemporary artist. His works will be on view at Hangaram Art Museum (2406 Nambusunhwan-ro, Seocho-dong, Seocho-gu, Seoul, South Korea) from November 20th, 2020 to March 28th, 2021.

Art critics have often labeled his early work “critical realism,” a term that encompassed a number of Chinese artists in the early 1990s that used satire to juxtapose capitalism and consumerism with Chinese communism.

Minjun says that the laughing character of his work was developed in response to the changes that China experienced since 1989.

“It has a lot to do with the changes brought about by China’s reform. The changes cause the changes in people’s behavior, very fast changes too. People’s emotions are different too, full and stimulating. The laughing faces represent the emotional feelings of the people.”

Lee Seung Taek’s Non-Art: The Inversive Act

Untitled, 1968/2018 via MMCA

Contemporary Korean artist, Lee Seung Taek, will be displaying his works from November 25th, 2020 to March 28th, 2021 at the National Museum of Contemporary and Modern Art in Korea, MMCA (30 Samcheong-ro, Sogyeok-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul 03062).

Lee Seung Taek (b. 1932) is a representative figure in Korean experimental art who has continued since the 1950s until today with a prolific body of work spanning installation, sculpture, painting, photography, land art, and performance art. Lee Seung Taek’s Non-Art: The Inversive Act is a large-scale retrospective that aims to shed new light on the sixty-year career of an artist who played a pioneering role in transforming Korean contemporary art. The exhibition title Lee Seung Taek’s Non-Art: The Inversive Act encapsulates a career spent inverting every kind of object and idea, challenging fixed notions of art. His artistic views are well expressed in his declaration, “My view was inverted. My thought process was inverted. My life in this world was inverted.”and through the concept of “non-sculpture” by which he strove to break free of existing sculptural contexts.

Chantal Joffe: Teenagers

Chantal Joffe: Teenagers at Lehmann Maupin Seoul

The American-born and London-based artist, Chantal Joffe, will be displaying a collection of works at Lehmann Maupin Seoul (74-18, Yulgok-ro 3-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul) from November 12th, 2020 to January 29th, 2021.

For Teenagers, Joffe presents a series that documents the vulnerability and insouciance of adolescents. The boys and girls depicted avoid a direct gaze, glancing to the side or looking at the floor from beneath heavy-lidded eyes, with arms and hands awkwardly poised as though the subjects are uncomfortable in the skin of their rapidly-changing bodies. The paintings portray a sense of intimacy―friendships budding or relationships and self awareness maturing. The psychology of Joffe’s portraiture is elusive, her subjects often pensive and sometimes self-absorbed. Laying bare the physical effort of their making and suffused with a palpable empathetic warmth, Joffe’s paintings deeply question ever-shifting human connections and the endless intricacies of looking. Ultimately, the subject of Joffe’s painting is life: she charts the process of living and aging, tracing the difficulties, disappointments, and small victories to be subtly decoded from the faces and gestures of her painted subjects.

Park Rehyun Retrospective: Triple Interpreter

Glory by Park Rehyun via MMCA

You can visit the Park Rehyun exhibition at the Deoksugung location of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (99 Sejong-daero, Jung-gu, Seoul) from September 24th, 2020 to January 3rd, 2021.

As one of the most talented and innovative artists of the twentieth century, Park Rehyun (1920–1976) transformed the entire field of Korean ink-wash painting by freely crossing the boundaries of ink-wash, printmaking, and tapestries. But following her untimely death from cancer, her art was gradually forgotten, until she was primarily remembered as the wife of Kim Kichang.

At a time when few Korean women could sustain a career as artists, Park Rehyun had to strive constantly to juggle her artistic production with her demanding life as a mother and the wife of a hearing-impaired husband. By incorporating domestic handicrafts and motifs from her daily routines into her works, she expanded the modes of artistic expression and achieved her own independent vision based on her identity as a mother, woman, and Asian.

This exhibition introduces the life and art of Park Rehyun, who overcame social restrictions on women while still embracing her domestic responsibilities. Both as a loving wife who mastered English, Korean, and lip-reading in order to help her husband communicate and as a pioneering artist who excelled in painting, tapestry, and printmaking, Park Rehyun was indeed a “triple interpreter.”

2020 Title Match: Yang Ah Ham vs. Dongjin Seo

2020 Title Match: Yang Ah Ham vs. Dongjin Seo via SeMA

Works by artists, Yang Ah Ham and Dongjin Seo, can be viewed from October 20th, 2020 to February 14th, 2021 at Buk-Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA, 1238 Dongil-ro, Nowon-gu, Seoul, South Korea).

Every year, SeMA, Buk-Seoul Museum of Art invites two artists to hold an exhibition under the name of Title Match. For the past six years, Title Match has experimented with exhibition formats and sought new possibilities for competition, conversation, and collaboration between its two invited artists. This year, a theorist has been invited for the first time to change the format of the exhibition.

In its seventh anniversary this year, Title Match is joined by artist Yang Ah Ham and critic Dongjin Seo. The two try to converse on the theme of “How do we interpret today?” As a critical response to Yang Ah Ham’s work to research and analyze problems in the social system and predict the near future, Dongjin Seo brings the narrative of a Utopian past to usher in a new future. Within this conversational structure, the two hope to glimpse into each other’s creativity and imagination and draw out common ground on the subject in an atmosphere of respect and support.

Dust Clay Stone

Dust Clay Stone exhibition at Art Sonje Center

The group art exhibition, Dust Clay Stone, includes works by Pia Arke, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Bouchra Khalili, and Alexander Ugay and will be held from October 30th, 2020 to December 20th, 2020 at Art Sonje Center (87 Yulgok-ro 3-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea).

Dust Clay Stone focuses on works that represent the complex issues of identity faced by individuals experiencing situations of migration, as well as the perceptions that are formed or lost in the course of such experiences. The four artists, Pia Arke, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Bouchra Khalili and Alexander Ugay, whose works appear in the exhibition either experienced migration due to personal reasons or historical circumstance or are still living in a situation of it. While each of them has diverse cultural background through the experience of having been born in different regions of the globe and migrated to different continents or countries, the artists reveal their interests in the complex identity, the individual and collective memories, post-colonialism and allyship in their works. The works are also inter-connected in their methods of creating works such as their deep exploration of the structure of languages, the representation of images, approaches to the archival references, etc.

Jeong Myung-jo’s Solo Exhibition at Artside Gallery

These hyperrealistic oil paintings by Jeong Myung-jo can be viewed at Artside Gallery (33 Tongui-dong, Jongro-gu Seoul, South Korea) from October 22nd, 2020 to December 6th, 2020.

The artist uses a technique called Hyperrealism to precisely depict the back of a woman in a hanbok. The hanbok, completed with a delicate touch, is as elaborate as it is before your eyes. The persistence that reminds us of the splendid costumes of the Baroque era captivates the audience. For some, the beauty of tradition according to the details, and for others, the pain imposed on maintaining the beauty. But that’s not all. Rather, it can be said that the artist’s intention is to leave various interpretations to the audience through an anonymous appearance. The woman in the work does not show any words or stories. Looking back at the silent object, each audience imagines their own story. This resembles the current trend of communicating with anonymous people through social media. It is difficult to confirm each other’s sincerity in a system that is connected through the act of’follow’. In the feed of SNS, there is only the packaged beauty shared by the other party. In the photos where all the sense of reality has been erased, nothing like scars, anguish, or sadness can be seen. Therefore, SNS becomes a kind of playground where each other’s hearts are not confirmed.

Jeongsu Woo: Where Is My Voice

Swan and Woman by Woo Jeong-soo, 2020 via Doosan Art Center

You can view Jeongsu Woo’s works from November 18th, 2020 to December 23rd, 2020 at Doosan Art Center Gallery (Doosan Art Center 1F, 15 Jongno 33-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul).

Through Woo Jung-soo’s various works in Where Is My Voice, we can see that the message he ultimately wanted to convey was about moving images. Like a navigator’s journey to find his lost voice, you can discover the artist’s attitude of Woo Woo Jung-soo, who finds a new way of dealing with the plane through the free use of icons and patterns, experiments with colorful colors and lines, textures and supports.

This solo art exhibition by Heenang Heesoo Kim will be on view from November 13th, 2020 to January 10th, 2020 at Everyday Mooonday (14 Songpa-Daero 48gil, Songpa-gu, Seoul).

Kim normally works with everyday life as his main subject. For this exhibition, he carefully steps into exploring the negative side of our individual hearts and minds living the ‘unusual life’ in the recent months of pandemic.

If you’ve ever been to any TeamLab exhibition around the world or in Tokyo, you’ll know how delightful this immersive experience is.

teamLab aims to explore the relationship between the self and the world and new perceptions through art.

In order to understand the world around them, people separate it into independent entities with perceived boundaries between them. teamLab seeks to transcend these boundaries in our perception of the world, of the relationship between the self and the world, and of the continuity of time. Everything exists in a long, fragile yet miraculous, borderless continuity of life.

More than 150 masterpieces by this artist, whose name has become a byword for youth, and who is loved by people around the world as a source of new inspiration.

Yangachi: Galaxy Express

Yangachi, Galaxy Express, 2020, Installation View, Barakat Contemporary

This solo exhibition by Korean media artist, Yangachi, will be on view from October 15th, 2020 to December 13th, 2020 at Barakat Contemporary (36 Samcheong-ro 7-gil, Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea).

Admission is free, but you need to make an appointment ahead of time by filling out this form here.

In Galaxy Express, Yangachi posits that digital art is a psychic medium allowing for communication with other universes. This exhibition presents a realization of such a “galaxy” of the not-too-distant future, manifested in futuristic tokens cast from religious icons, dolls, and sculptures and photos by the artist, all of which bear dozens or hundreds of eyes, mouths, and other sensory organs. Yangachi’s artworks guide us through the clues hidden within them, experimenting with the essence of “media” through their points of contact with a galaxy that, although imperceptible, exists.

MMCA Hyundai Motor Series 2020: Haegue Yang―O₂ & H₂O

Haegue Yang exhibition in Seoul via Hyundai.com

International artist, Haegue Yang, will be exhibiting her works from September 29th, 2020 to February 28th, 2021 at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA, 30 Samcheong-ro, Sogyeok-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul 03062).

In MMCA Hyundai Motor Series 2020: Haegue Yang – O₂ & H₂O, the artist attempts another leap toward “the abstraction of reality.” As the major energies of living organisms, air and water do not exist purely in natural states as chemical symbols. While O₂ & H₂O refers precisely to specific materials, the title feels abstract at the same time, metaphorically expressing the evolution of the artist’s persistent interest in tracing formless sensorial experience with the abstract language of art. O₂ & H₂O poses questions to contemplate in totality the world of scientific facts, the perceptual world including experiences and senses that venture beyond such facts, and the phenomenal world that is gradually pushed to the brink with the climate crisis and disasters.

The Unperceived

Lee Jin-ju’s exhibition “The Unperceived” via The Korea Times

Korean artist, Jinju Lee, will be displaying her works from September 9th, 2020 to February 14th, 2021 at Arario Museum (in SPACE, 83, Yulgok-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, Korea 03058).

Jinju Lee draws delicately and in detail the pieces of memories and symbolic objects of everyday life that contain traces of the past intact. Based on tenacious observation of life and reality, she creates a peculiar and unfamiliar landscape formed on reality.

We live our lives while perceiving the world subjectively within the framework of our own experience and thought. On the one hand, some things exist in a way that cannot be seen or that are invisible or unexplainable. Thus, the way that people view the world is essentially imperfect in that it is somewhat distorted or lacking. In this exhibition, Jinju Lee presents her work in a huge A-shaped structure that encompasses the entire space so that the images cannot all be grasped at once. As if admiring an open scroll, the viewers realize the inevitable existence of ‘the unperceived’ which exists but is invisible, as they move along with the work created at eye level. Viewers will have the opportunity to think about the structure of truth that exists in ways that cannot be explained in many areas of life.

Tiger Lives

This tiger-filled exhibition will be held from September 7th, 2020 to December 19th, 2020 at the Coreana Museuem of Art (827, Eonju-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea).

Tiger Lives is a special exhibition consisting of cultural relics and paintings of tigers in the Coreana Museum of Art and the Coreana Cosmetics Museum’s collection, presented alongside contemporary videos, paintings, and installations. Taken from video artist Nam June Paik’s eponymous work, the title emphasizes the persistent belief in the tiger’s symbolic presence in its present-progressive tense. From tiger claws – known for their power to ward off ill fate – to tiger embroideries on the military attire, paintings of roaring tigers and their comical renditions in folk art, tigers occupy a wide spectrum of representations to encompass disparate classes and beliefs. The symbolism of the tiger, meanwhile, stimulates new explorations in the minds of contemporary artists, mediating discrete points of history, culture, and myth. We hope that the exhibition would present the visitors with an opportunity to experience the rich oeuvre of tiger symbolisms through traditional representations and contemporary recontextualizations.
