International Artists' Productive Misreadings - Marvelous Stories
From April 5th to May 29th. The Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA) and Paris's Palais de Tokyo have come together to present "Urban Legends" on the occasion of 130 year of Korean-French diplomatic ties. "Urban Legends" is a result of a cooperation between SeMA and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, it is located at the main SeMA branch in Seosomun, on the 3rd floor.
Through this cooperation, artists were offered a new creative environment. Through this exchange and interactions, artists were able to create new initiatives and projects. In November, 2015, the Paris Pavilion was installed and in March of 2016, five artists were selected to take part in a Seoul workshop. The experimental works and other creative results from that workshop will be on display at SeMA.
The participating artists are Kim Ayoung, Lou Lim, Alexis Guillier, Ange Leccia, Hoël Duret, Ollie Palmer, and Jean-Alain Corre. These artists from different backgrounds explore and cross boundaries of gender, nationality, and culture. Their creative and imaginative initiatives are based on experiences in both Seoul and Paris. The title of this exhibition is a nod to fact that their experiences took place in an urban setting. The works on display are products of the disconnect, new interpretations, and misunderstandings that arise as a result of living in a new environment. Visitors to “Urban Legends” can look forward to seeing new takes on familiar realities.
