Sejong Center will continue to exhibit pop art.
“Understanding and translating contemporary art” is the main goal for this exhibition at Sejong Center. Contemporary art is something that is thought of when thinking back to the 1960s in the U.S. Pop art started as being the opposite side of abstract expressionists. Pop art had a more public appeal that the people were used to. Therefore, it appeared through mass media and was depicted as being “American.” The influence of Dadaism was one of the greater changes to contemporary art. This movement could be perceived as a way to express art that has never been done before.
What some people may perceive as being “difficult to understand” could have a chance to “understand” contemporary art in a more fun and exciting way through pop art. Just looking through the pop art collections that are on display would actually bring out the “fun” in art for anyone. This exhibition features Korean pop artists who show the start of contemporary art and how it has been changing over the years. Getting to know the history, how it changed, pop art, and why it was sought to be publically appealing can all be learned and seen at one place, Sejong Center.
