Activating the City

Category : Arts/Performances
Period :   Dec 05, 2016 ~ Mar 19, 2017

Introduction

Activating the City: Urban Gastronomy relate food with life, art, and community that keeps the city vibrant. Gastronomy should not be confined to the food itself, rather be understood relating the sociological meaning that it has in the daily live of humans. Food now is not just a medium to consume nutrition and survival, rather is add on to the meaning of itself while they go through the process of trading, cooking, sharing and etc. This meaning accumulates to make the city a vibrant place and thereby lead us to think back on our lives and renovate new communal culture.

 

Through art, the artists attempt to reconcile and reconstruct the image of the paradigm deep inside our livings. The goal is to secure the individual self while being a group in the bigger scope. Recently those that work for art are approaching this fundamental being in a novel way. That are to examine the social entity by looking at the food, shelter, clothing groups share and find the meaning that they put in.

Since opening its door in 1969, the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA), Korea has lived through the history of Korean art. In the process, MMCA established itself as a representative institution of Korean modern art.

The museum’s four branches, including Gwacheon (opened in 1986), Deoksugung (opened in 1998), Seoul (opened in 2013), and Cheongju (expected to open in 2017), each in its own way, will continue to carry out MMCA’s commitment to the art and culture of Korea by enriching the first-hand cultural experience of the viewing public.

MMCA’s foremost mission is to offer a culturally rewarding experience to its visitors.
We will remain committed to this mission for many generations to come.
