Ah, the summer in Daegu. Long sweaty walks between destinations. Blistering sunburns from mere minutes outside. A midday changing of clothes in an attempt to feel "clean." Gross.
Fear not; there is a place of temporary solace for you: Beomeo Art Street, which you may have heard mention of on this very blog before. Sunken underground (away from the punishing sun), the street offers at least a dozen art venues and galleries to peruse.
This Monday, the 4th, will be optimum perusal time. The PAAS art collective is having an opening at 6pm, displaying prints created in their Daegu studio. The show, curated by Park Chul Ho, will feature various printmaking mediums by 16-17 artists. Etchings, mixed media, woodcuts, and screen prints will all be on display (and for sale!). The show will have a healthy mix of Korean artists and expats, and even one of our close personal friends MESH Printing (full disclosure: myself and Chris Cote) will have some work in the show.
The show will be displayed throughout Beomeo Art Street, on the walls and in some of the galleries as well (we think). Though the opening is on a Monday, you'll still have the entire month to go and check it out! Here are all the details:
Opening: Monday, August 4th 6pm
Exhibition: August 4th - August 30th (a rare full month show!)
Location: Beomeo Art Street - just take the green line to "Beomeo" Station, stay underground and walk down the long hallway toward the 7-11. Keep walking straight about 1-2 minutes and you'll start seeing art! Don't go up to street level and suffer the wrath of the sun. Let's go!
