A groundbreaking show that is the first of its kind in the West, The Space Between: The Modern in Korean Art covers the years 1897-1965, loosely organized chronologically, stylistically and conceptually. The second of three major Korean art exhibitions of Hyundai Motor’s Korean Art Scholarship initiative, The Space Between spans the arc of European-influenced art via Japan in the Korean Empire (1897–1910) and colonial period (1910–45), explores American influences absorbed throughout the Korean War (1950–53), and provides a glimpse into the beginning of the contemporary. The exhibition will feature approximately 130 works that reflect the influx of foreign-introduced new media, the exhibition includes oils, ink, photography and sculpture.
The exhibit will go on display Sept. 11 and be available through Feb. 19, 2023 in the Resnick Pavilion.
