Media City Seoul begins in earnest– almost

23 Aug

On the heels of Seoul Museum of Art’s tremendously successful Rodin retrospective (but then again, the museum’s shows are always incredibly well-attended and well-received), Media City Seoul will begin installing in a few short days.  The art handlers arrived at the museum early in the morning to begin the first of several days de-installing the show– no easy task, considering the heft and bulk of some of that show’s more awe-inspiring works.

More updates to come as things develop.  For now, the only thing to do is hunker down and wait for the French sculptures to take their leave.  Quite a contrast, to be sure, between a retrospective exhibition of perhaps the most celebrated sculptor since Michaelangelo and a biennial taking contemporary media art as its theme–the razor’s edge of contemporary art practice–but I think that museum-goers will be equally delighted with both.
