I went to Japanese artist, Kusama Yayoi exhibition at Hangaram Gallery. She is famous for dot repetition. She collaborated on a collection with Louis Vuitton in 2012. Most of her works is in psychedelic colors, repetition and pattern. It was fun to participate in her installation with four different dot stickers.
Korean sunglasses brand Gentle Monster shop just opened! Black submarine in the shop… automatic mirror door(looks like a wall)… The exterior and interior design are very unique. I tried every sunglasses to find good one for me.
I went to Hiroshi Sugimoto’s exhibition at Leeum. I could see a wide range of his art from the late 1970s to the present. It was fun to experience his long exposure idea in front of his famous theater.
Louis Vuitton party again! It showed fashion collection influenced by one of Louis Vuitton’s muse, Charlotte Perriand. I could see her modern furniture as well. Modern finger foods from perriand’s style, unlimited champagne, and there was a photo shooting event with a famous korean photographer Genius OH.
Finally, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art(MMCA) is opened! I went to MMCA’s opening party. When I got to the museum, a huge installation by Do-Ho Suh appeared. This museum shows an expansive view of the various trends of modern to contemporary art. The space of this museum is immense so it’s really suitable to show many big installation and work. And I enjoyed the party with Absolut vodka cocktails. I’m sure that it’s must-visit place if you visit Seoul.
