Daejeon

Art Fix: 3 Cities, 3 Exhibitions

First up, Daejeon.

The members of the Daejeon Arts Collective are preparing something very special for you. Their exhibition, MADE IN KOREA, will include work from 13 artists representing five different countries. The opening reception will take place on May 17th at 7PM. If you can't make the reception, the art will be displayed every day from 10AM to 7PM until May 21st.

MADE IN KOREA will include photography, painting, mixed media, and more. With this many artists participating, it's going to be a diverse collection of work well worth your attention.


And in Ilsan....

Poet and visual artist Doug Stuber will hold an opening reception in Ilsan this Sunday, April 13th at 3PM. 'How I Feel Today' is a solo exhibition of Doug's impactful abstract paintings which will be on display until May 11th. Doug claims he's an "old school" artist who generally works without a concept and allows the viewer to "make their own subject" out of his emotions. His expressive painting technique is often without forethought which makes for a surprising and genuine end product. 


Let's not forget Daegu....

Brandon Inman gave us a taste of what he'd been working on this week in preparation for his opening reception at Gallery [t.] on Saturday. I got a look at the completed collection earlier this week and it's definitely some of the largest and most impressive work that we've had in Gallery [t.] so far. His wife claims that a lot of it is "too scary", so you know it's good!

After starting the night at Gallery [t.] this Saturday at 7PM, walk over to Jeng-iy bar to celebrate Busan band Beaches' album launch show (facebook invite HERE) presented by I Like Many Records. Great art and and great music all in one night? Pinch me!

Art Fix: Art Springing Up In Daegu And Daejeon

It’s that time again: We’re switching up the artists at Gallery [t.]. Daegu artist Brandon Inman will be showing his illustrations for the next two months with an opening reception on August 12th at 7PM.  Brandon’s work was originally featured way back in our November 2012 issue, and was also a part of our very first [b] list exhibition at Gukje Art Museum at Keimyung University in Daegu last year. Which reminds me! The deadline for submissions to our second annual [b] list exhibition is approaching, so keep an eye on your calendars if you’re planning to submit your work for consideration. Click here for submission details and guidelines. 


 

 

 

 

If you’re in Daejeon this month be sure not to miss the Artist Residency Temi Inaugural Exhibition which includes impressive sculptural pieces from [b]racket artist Jürgen Dünhofen.  Jurgen’s pieces, along with work from five other artists, will be on display until April 20th. I’ll refrain from making a 4/20 joke here. Jürgen's sculptures have a real presence to them and each one deserves a closer look outside of the pages of [b]racket. Click here for an interactive map to the exhibition space.


 

The weather is now officially perfect to spend your days off outdoors. Here’s a perfect way to do just that: Open every Saturday in April, Bangchun Art Market in Daegu will feature affordable crafts, jewelry, and art for sale. Not only is it free to walk around the market, but it’s also free for artists to participate and sell their own work. Foot traffic is high, so this would be a great place for artists and craftspeople to sell their work. If you’re an artist who is interested, visit the market’s facebook page and message the organizers (both of whom are past [b]racket artists) for more info.
 

To get to the art market, take the subway to Kyungpook National University Hospital Station on the green line. Go out exit 3 and walk straight towards the river. Take a right after VIPS Steakhouse and you can’t miss it.
