Seoul Art Space International Symposium 2012
<Myth or Reality : Policy, the Artist, Community>
You are Cordially Invited.
We warmly invite you to a symposium of the Seoul Art Spaces. The Seoul Art Spaces have established themselves as a platform for the growth and development of artists and as art spaces in communication with the local community.
The international symposia which Seoul Art Space-Geumcheon has been holding since first opening in 2009 are already in their fourth year, and with timely themes such as The Current Conditions and Future of Art Spaces (2009), Communities and Local Revitalization (2010) and The Relationship of Mutual Support between the Arts and Industrial Corridors (2011).
This event will inspect how the policies and artists’ activities, local changes and the critical perspective of academia regarding such are being formed under the design of a current global trend of arts and culture in ‘community art.’ We have structured a meaningful discourse under the theme of ‘Myth or Reality: Policy, the Artist, Community’ and have invited the currently most active professionals in the fields of policy, the arts and sociology.
We hope that you will attend this event, which is adding depth by the passing year, and experience the activities and discourses at the forefront of the areas of first-hand practice, academia and policy. Thank you.
