Youths are ‘Revolutionary’. In this sense, they are consistently yearning for something new or looking to confront and overcome challenges. To celebrate the ‘revolutionary youths’, Young Revolution opens its first series of exhibitions in 2014.
This exhibition, “2014 Young Revolution”, features selection of works from Korean artists aged between 25 to 35 years who, by their use of diverse range of mediums and concepts, have challenged the parameters of Korean contemporary art. The artworks are dynamic in their perception and diverse in their expression which unequivocally displays traits fitting to the generation of these artists. Through eclectic genre of artworks including painting, sculpture, oriental painting, photography, video art and ceramics, “2014 Young Revolution” presents a glimpse of the future of Korean contemporary art in the heart of Singapore.
With rapid developments in contemporary art in both Korea and Singapore, this exhibition endeavors to provide a platform on which to exchange artistic communion between the two countries and to provide next generation of young and inspirational artists an opportunity to expose their uniqueness to the wider audience.
