LACMA and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) presents a group exhibition “The Bright Future“, the first major museum exhibition in the United States to focus on contemporary art from South Korea.
The exhibition features work by a generation of artists who have emerged since the mid-1980s—some well-known and others on the brink of recognition—working on the cutting edge of international art trends and within a distinctly Korean context. Featuring site-specific installations as well as video, computer animation, and sculpture, the exhibition represents each artist through a large-scale installation piece or substantial body of work.
