It Is Open, Has Been Open for a While…

Ok, it has been open for over a week now. And it takes me this long to get a proper update. Anyhow, on October 4th Tomorrow opened as the main exhibition of Platform – Seoul (website coming soon), a neighbourhood contemporary art festival put on with the participation of galleries, art centers and museums in the Bukchon (北村) neighbourhood of Seoul. It was a splendid party where we were tremendously honoured to have in attendance around 20 of the participating artists, sponsors, local and foreign gallerists, and the generous hosts of the exhibition the directors of Kumho Museum of Art and Art Sonje Center. On the 5th the public opening was enhanced by a very well attended symposium put on by the Korea National University of Art, Art and Society. In the days that have followed, there have been artist talks by Jan Christensen, Shimabuku, Tadasu Takamine, Democracia, Cao Fei and Xijing Men. There have also been very well attended video screenings of works by Cao Fei, and from Pompidou Center’s New Media Collection. This last Saturday Etienne Sandarin, curator of the Pompidou’s New Media Collection gave a talk as well. Coming up this weekend we have:
