Your Bright Future: 12 Contemporary Artists from Korea

November 21, 2009 – February 14, 2010

The MFAH is the second and final venue for the first major museum exhibition in the continental United States in almost two decades to focus on contemporary art from South Korea. Organized by the MFAH and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Your Bright Future: 12 Contemporary Artists from Korea features a generation of artists who have emerged since the mid-1980s—some well-known and others on the brink of such recognition—all of whom work on the cutting-edge of international art trends and within a distinctly Korean context: Bahc Yiso, Choi Jeong-Hwa, Gimhongsok, Jeon Joonho, Kim Beom, Kimsooja, Koo Jeong-A, Minouk Lim, Jooyeon Park, Do Ho Suh, Haegue Yang and the collaborative, Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries. Your Bright Future (a deliberately ambiguous title taken from a sculpture by Bahc Yiso) represents each artist through a large-scale installation or substantial body of work, including site-specific installations, video art, computer animation, and sculpture. Christine Starkman, MFAH Curator of Asian Art, is organizing the presentation in Houston.
