Today, we introduce you one of the great art museum in South Korea. Leeum which is planned and built by Samsung, opened October, 2004. Basically you can meet art pieces of greates modern artist’s works, such as Jeff Koons, Gilbert &George,Paik nam juen, Cindy Sherman, Yayoi Kusama and Louise Bourgeois. Also they got wonderful traditional art. if you are the person who have a deep knowledge of Buddhist art. then you must visit Leeum.
Especially when we visited Leeum museum, they got an temporary exhibition of HIROSHI SUGIMOTO. He has been recognized as one of the most significant figures in the history of Japan’s contemporary art and the master of contemporary photography with technical excellence and conceptual philosophical profundity in his work. Personally he was my favorite photographer in a decade because i’ve been affected by his attitude and the way of approach to art.
Anyway if you had a plan to come to Seoul untill April in this year, never gonna miss this precious chance to meet his work.
