Take ( ) at face value

Korean contemporary art

Take ( ) at face value explores various aspects of modern Korean society through formats of contemporary art underpinning the stereotypes and bias that evolve around us. Spanning mixed media, photography, performance and painting, this exhibition will question the universal concepts that are revealed to us at face value. It is a rare opportunity to witness works from established contemporary Korean artists that have not had much exposure in the Australian art scene.
