Busan Museum of Art’s ‘Facade Busan 2013′ offers a chance to view a half century of Busan’s history through photos until May 5. The title refers to Busan’s status as a gateway between land and sea, and this is an occasion to reflect on the past and present. Items on display include paintings, photos, visuals and sculptures from the Busan Museum of Art, other national and public museums, and private collections.
The exhibition was designated by Busan artists and covers three eras: the 1960-70s, when Busan developed into a modern city; the 1980s-90s, when the city overcame growing pains; and the 2000s, which marked the start of an international metropolis for the new millennium.
Kim Jong-shik’s ‘Hyundai Shipyard’ depicts the 1960s and 70s, and ‘Come Back to Busan Port’ reflects the 1980s and 90s, and works by seven contemporary artists will show the 2000s. In addition, there are more than 1,000 photos that date from the 1960s to the present.
There will be photographs donated by ordinary citizens that show the day-to-day life of the people of Busan from the 1960s onward.
