Beomeo Art Street never disappoints in showcasing quality artwork in Daegu. Beginning on May 1st, a new exhibition of work from Korean artist Kim Jae Kyung and Chinese artist Yu Shaoze will occupy Project B Gallery.
While being shown together, the artists' works are vastly different from one another. Yu Shaoze's photographs depict a miniature world in which candles act out scenes from our daily lives. Kim Jae Kyung's "New World" mixed media installation of winged figures in flight utilizes the entire space with calm pastels. Kim wants the viewer to wander around the space and eventually leave feeling lighter than when they came in.
The exhibition is free (as always) and will run for the entire month of May.
To get to Project B Gallery in Daegu, hop off the subway at Beomeo on the green line and head towards exit 8.
Don't forget, Big Day South is almost upon us! Two of our favorite venues in Daegu will host artists and musicians from Ulsan, Daegu and Busan THIS Saturday, April 26th. Take a peek at all of the events you'll be able to experience for only 15,000 won!
