So thanks to a post on Heejoo Kim’s The Fifth Season blog I see that there is an exhibition of jewellery from over forty local artists currently on show at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA). As Kim has worded it, the exhibition has been planned by Yong-il Jeon, Professor at Kookmin University, and the gallery itself on their website nominates the curator as Sooyoun Lee.
The exhibition, entitled Ornament and Illusion – Spectrum of Contemporary Jewelry has over 200 works on display, and runs for over six months from the 12th June, 2013 til the 28th February, 2014.
More jewellery in a contemporary art museum. That’s very exciting stuff!
