COVER STORY 
Fascinating exhibit spaces are the repository of Korean art and culture
Written by
Kwon Mee-yoo
T
he opening of a new branch of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) Seoul last November was the biggest event in the Korean art world in decades. New York has the Museum of Modern Art, London has the Tate Modern, Paris has the Centre Pompidou and finally Seoul has a decent museum dedicated to contemporary art, part of a continuing effort to expand the cultural influence and build a presence on the art scene.President Park Geun-hye expressed her high expectations for the nation’s flagship art museum as well. At the opening of MMCA Seoul last November, Park said she tries to visit museums when she tours foreign countries, as they are a repository of culture. “Museums are not only to view art work, but they also form the source of imagination and creative ideas, as well as provide psychological enrichment and artistic sensitivity,” President Park said. “I hope MMCA Seoul becomes the center of Korean culture and art, along with the Bukchon area and the galleries located there, and grows into a place where international artists visiting Korea can share this inspiration and artistic taste.”
