The Contemporary Korean Writing Exhibition opened at the National Museum of Modern Art in South Korea, Korea Herald reported on March 31.
The exhibition is available on the museum’s official YouTube channel. A tour of the exhibition is conducted by the curator of the collection Bae Won Jung. The purpose of the exhibition is to show the beauty of the art of calligraphy with the help of masterpieces of the 1920s and modern works.
In addition, the exhibition shows that calligraphy is not boring; it is full of dynamics and contradictions.
In Asia, calligraphy has always influenced other forms of art: painting and poetry. “This is because we used a brush for writing and paintings, while in the West only a brush for paintings and only a pen for writing were used,” the curator of the exhibition noted.
The exhibition consists of four sections, 300 works in total are presented at it.
