Jeju Museum of Art is holding an exhibition entitled Time of Resonance to celebrate its fifth anniversary as part of an effort to reinterpret and popularize abstruse contemporary art, calling for discourse and thoughts in a new way. The exhibition Time of Resonance is intended to explore various phenomena of contemporary art and, consequently, highlight trends and discourse of contemporary art through quality works of popular artists. Through the history of art, traditional arts like paintings and sculptures have been worshiped as having the absolute values of beauty and sublimity.
However, after Marcel Duchamp appeared in the 1910s, new forms and contents of art emerged as pop arts in the 1960s, Concept Art, Fluxus and others followed. The exhibition’s main concept, resonance is, defined in physics as “the tendency of a system to oscillate with greater amplitude at some frequencies than at others.” This concept is a symbol for contemporary art seeking new domains previously thought impossible, as contemporary art has rapidly become more complex and genre deconstruction has progressed.
This exhibition is an opportunity to examine the present status of contemporary art, which has kept exploring new domains beyond the borders of opposing concepts, such as time and space, past and future, plane and solid, art and daily life, eternity and impermanence. The twelve artists, including Ko Younghoon, Lee Kangso, Moon Beom, Kim Hong Joo, Kong Sung-Hun, Lee Sookyung, Oh Inwhan, Jung Yongsung, Chung Suejin represent different generations and approaches, thus showing various movements of contemporary art expanding into diverse fields.
Filled with the boundless imagination of artists, this exhibition will bring momentum to understanding contemporary art. It is a meaningful opportunity to easily approach the density of contemporary art through appreciation of works resonating this epoch of ours.
