Welcome to the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Cheongju.
The exhibition Delivery in Art on view today sheds light on delivery culture found in contemporary society from the perspectives of art and art museums.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about considerable changes in our lives.
One of these changes is delivery practices that have rapidly expanded to suit the needs of non-face-to-face environments.
Art has also embraced diverse aspects of this social phenomenon.
The three sections of this exhibition trace the relationship between art and delivery.
The first section, “Delivering the Art Museum,” features materials and artworks addressing the MMCA’s public delivery programs that were designed to directly approach target audiences in and after the 1990s.
The second section of the exhibition starts from Marcel Duchamp’s work Box in a Suitcase.
It introduces experimental artworks created in and after the 1940s that use communication mediums as tools for expression.
The final section aims to share thoughts on the delivery practices in today’s society through contemporary artworks that provide varied interpretations of delivery.
The exhibition title implies that the agent who experiences and then transfers feelings received from art museums or a delivery person is ultimately the audience.
We encourage you to become an active audience member who pleasantly enjoys the exhibition and delivers it in turn through your own methods.
By doing so, we hope this exhibition can reach a wider range of people. Thank you.
