Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Park Rehyun (1920–1976), this exhibition journeys through the world of an artist whose life was dedicated to experimental art. Along with Chun Kyung-ja, Park Rehyun is considered one of the most prominent women painters of the 20th century. She is also known for leading Korea's art scene through the 1950s and 1960s with her husband Kim Kichang. Embracing abstract art in the 1950s, Park sought a new direction for Korean painting. In 1956, she rose to fame when she received two Presidential Awards, at the National Exhibition and the Korean Art Association Exhibition, in 1956. This exhibition will cast light on the image of an enthusiastic artist who adopted international art trends through heavy involvement in overseas exhibitions, moved to the United States at the age of 50, acquired new techniques, including printmaking, tapestry, and papier collé, and pushed the limits of Eastern painting. Special attention will be given to Park's overcoming the traditionally male-centric environment of ink and wash painting, as she considered art that is closely related to daily life and sought to blur the boundaries between technique and art. Park's achievements are a culmination of her agony and solitary struggle with her identity as a woman. The MMCA seeks to reexamine the significance of Park's achievements in the history of modern and contemporary art in Korea and reignite the discussion on women and art in the 20th century.
