Coreana Museum of Art is pleased to announce the opening of THE VOICE, an exhibition which focuses on "voice," a theme that has been somewhat marginalized although it is already discussed in multiple forms within the visual arts of today. The museum has consistently explored the theme, 'body,' through its diverse exhibitions over the last ten years. Relying on the solid references, unique history and context that the museum has achieved through its previous exhibitions, THE VOICE explores the concept of "voice" from various angles by featuring works produced from the 1960s to today. In this exhibition, "voice" is considered as a critical medium to the field of visual art, not as a subordinate concept.

 

THE VOICE provides an opportunity to rethink "voice," a theme that has been familiar yet not been discussed enough within the field of visual art, by introducing 12 international artists with diverse philosophical, aesthetical, and social perspectives. 

 

Participating artists: Judith Barry, John Cage, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Jeremy Deller, Mikhail Karikis, Ga Ram Kim, On Kim, Ragnar Kjartansson, Bruce Nauman, Jeanine Oleson, Sei Rhee, Slavs and Tatars
