The Korea Foundation, in cooperation with the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Korea (MMCA) and the Metropolitan Museum Manila launches the “Fifty Years of Korean Contemporary Printmaking” exhibit on August 1, 2013.

The exhibit is part of the ongoing 2013 Korea Festival in ASEAN.

The exhibit, which previously had its run in Indonesia, consists of 81 works sourced from MMCA from varied periods, starting from the 1950s down to the 1990s in an effort to introduce the history of Korean Printmaking tradition to the Filipinos.

Coinciding with the launching on August 1, there will be lectures to be held in the morning and in the afternoon:

Curator's Talk at 10:00 A.M. to be facilitated by Ms. Lauren Hwang, MMCA Curator. This will provide an opportunity to gain further insights on the exhibition, the artworks and its artists.

Special Lecture: "Constructing the Next Generation Museum" at 3:00 P.M. by Ms. Chung Hyung-min, Director of MMCA. The MMCA is constructing a new building in the heart of Seoul that will provide the first comprehensive view of its unsurpassed collection of modern and contemporary art. The director will present the museum’s new vision, values, and beliefs that will be advocated to the public through strategic planning of policy formation, collection management, curatorship and social responsibilities.

This exhibit is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Korea, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in the Philippines and the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines.
