Exhibition Planning, Curation & Coordination

Choi Jeong Hwa “OK!” We proudly present an art exhibition of the brilliant South Korean artist Choi Jeong Hwa at the Towada Art Center. The exhibition, entitled “OK!”, coincides with the first anniversary of the opening of the Art Center, a pivotal part of the `Arts Towada’ initiative. Choi is one of the most dynamic and well-known of Korean contemporary artists and his `Flower Horse’ has become the iconic symbol of the Art Center. With a philosophy of `art for everyone’, Choi consistently sends a message that art & culture embrace everyone who embraces art & culture, not just an elite few. At this exhibition, he `recycles’ everyday goods, such as rice bowls and plastic gadgets into art pieces. For many, this may invoke the essential questions of `what is art?’ and `why is this art?’. ■ Exhibition Outline Period: April 25 (Sun) – August 23 (Sun), 2009 Hours: 9:00 – 17:00 (Admission until 30 minutes before closing time) Closed on Monday (Next day if Monday is a National Holiday or substitute holiday) Venue: Towada Art Center etc. (Distribute the exhibition map at Towada Art Center) Organized by: Towada Art Center Curated by: NANJO and ASSOCIATES
