Birth of a Museum: Documenting the Construction of MMCA, Seoul
MMCA presents five special exhibitions on the occasion of her inauguration that anticipate the vision and direction of the new museum, introducing artworks by approximately 120 artists in seven disciplines. Connecting_Unfolding aims to advance into the heart of Korean art and into the hub of the international art scene; The Aleph Project symbolizes the future of MMCA Seoul as a platform for communication and a fusion of diverse genres of contemporary art; Zeitgeist Korea depicts the potential of Korean contemporary art within a historical context; Site-specific Art Project presents customized, large-scale site-specific installation works that fully utilize the museum’s spaces; and Birth of a Museum shows a diverse and holistic photographic documentation of MMCA Seoul’s construction process.

Connecting_Unfolding, the premiere exhibition of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Seoul, is designed to accentuate art's ever-changing interpretation of and union with life, particularly in this era of disintegrating boundaries and emerging dimensions of convergence and synthesis between disciplines. The exhibition represents a fresh inquiry into the ways in which our individual values and ideas may erupt into the world, igniting communication and forcing us to reassess the value of art in any given era or society. In this context, a team of curators from six countries Eunju Choi, Richard Flood, Ann Gallagher, Yuko Hasegawa, Sook-Kyung Lee, Bernhard Serexhe, and Pooja Sood have gathered to select the seven participating artists: Tacita Dean, Kim Jones, Amar Kanwar, Marc Lee, Lee Mingwei, Kishio Suga, and Minha Yang. In the marvelous new venue of MMCA Seoul, built to represent the intersection of various concepts the traditional and contemporary, history and the present, society and art, the museum's inaugural exhibition focuses on the primary themes of "connecting" and "unfolding," incessant processes through which phenomena perpetually encounter and contact one another to enact new dimensions and possibilities.
