Digital Culture, CICA Museum in S Korea
I am very honored to be one of the artists selected for the Digital Culture exhibit at the CICA Museum in Gyeonggi-do, S Korea. The exhibit runs July 22 – August 7, 2016. My submission looked like this:
The drawing “Just Naver It” is a play on the US popular culture phrase, “Just Google It,” referring to the prevalence of the internet search engine as a means to provide the answer to everything. Naver is the equivalent popular browser in S Korea.
Selected artists could send in three pieces. I decided to send in a collection of my neon buddhas (it was a digital art exhibit, after all).
Apparently, CICA has an interesting history: it was started from the sculptor Czong Ho Kim’s studio. It has turned into a unique cultural space. They foster projects of experimental artists, they are “open for everyone to learn about Contemporary Art and apply it to one’s life.” Creative, artistic, comfortable, community… universal concepts I understand.
