Hello, Stranger initiated with the common aim from National Art Studios and the Korean Cultural Centre Australia(KCC) to introduce Korean contemporary art actively. The KCC, which opened last year, co-organised this exhibition to create a chance to introduce the creativity and excellence of Korean contemporary art.
This exhibition introduces the National Art Studios’ artists who delve into the problems of communication, relations, language, cultural code, tastes, individuals and society within these diverse spaces. The artists’ various perspectives indicate complex interests tangled with intercultural and multicultural discourse and suggest positive possibility through literature and philosophical approaches. This exhibition will provide valuable opportunity to see artistic excellence and share the deep thought of Korean contemporary artists, who are eternal ‘stranger’ wandering away from pre-existing ideas and customs.
