A new exhibition of important works of Korean modern and contemporary art will be put on permanent display at MMCA Seoul. This exhibition was planned to meet continuing demand from in and outside of the art world for a permanent exhibition of works from the MMCA collection that present various aspects of Korean modern and contemporary art for people to enjoy at any time. Through around forty works that represent each period of modern and contemporary art, viewers will trace the stream of the history of Korean art from the 20th century. The MMCA hopes that this exhibition will restore balance to the programs at MMCA Seoul, which are largely focused on contemporary art, and broaden museum attendance. This exhibition was planned in close connection with the permanent exhibition that will open at MMCA Gwacheon and will be interlinked with the content of 300 Works from the MMCA Collection, a special publication for the museum's 50th anniversary, and Introduction to Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea (working title), scheduled for publication in 2020.
