Detail: Seoul-based artist Park Chan-kyong has gained international recognition for his use of photography and film to examine the complex history of modern Korea. Park Chan-kyong: Gathering will be the first solo presentation of his work in a major US museum. The exhibition features a range of works that highlight his masterful use of the photographic medium to explore the enduring traces of tradition, history, and disaster in contemporary society. A multichannel video, Citizen’s Forest, anchors this exhibition of five recent works.

Park Chan-kyong: Gathering is the inaugural exhibition in the National Museum of Asian Art’s new modern and contemporary galleries, opening as the museum celebrates its centennial year and embarks on its next century. The galleries will become a space dedicated to engaging visitors in the myriad formats and media employed by artists to examine Asian society from the late twentieth century to today.
