Step into the captivating world of Contemporary Korean society, where tradition meets rapid modernization and Western influence.

Wonders and Witness: Contemporary Photography from Korea is an exhibition that invites you to explore the diverse facets of Korean life– its desires, anxieties, frustrations, and mysteries. It delves into pressing issues such as urbanization, the intricacies of family dynamics, the search for identity, and the enduring hope for a brighter future.

These photographs act as more than just witnesses to societal conditions; they are artistic commentaries that offer a unique interpretation of our everyday lives. Prepare to be enthralled by the wonders that surround us in the ordinary, as captured through the lens of Contemporary Korean photographers. 

Wonders and Witness: Contemporary Photography from Korea presents more than 80 works of 12 Korean photographers, including  including Bang Byoungsang, Chung Chuha, Gwon Doyeon, Kim Mi-Hyun, Kim Oksun, Kim Seunggu, Kim Taedong, Nikki S. Lee, Lee Sunmin, Oh Heinkuhn, Area Park, and Yoon JeongMee. The exhibition will accompany a symposium on photography in Korea and talks with artists open to the public.

Wonders and Witness: Contemporary Photography from Korea is co-organized by the Center for Creative Photography (CCP) and the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA), curated by Kim Namin, Curator, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, and in collaboration with the School of Art.
