10 years cooperation between Rijksakademie and Korea: exhibition

Tomorrow, the exhibition Emerging Other opens at the Arko Art Center in Seoul on the occasion of 10 years of cooperation between the Rijksakademie and the Arts Council Korea (Arko). Arko supports the residency of Korean artists with a Fellowship. Since 2015, thirteen residents have received an Arko Fellowship.
 
Aside from new work by Arko Fellows, the exhibition also presents works that were realised during their residency in Amsterdam and that were never before on view in Korea. The presentation focuses on the impact of a stay at the Rijksakademie and the personal experiences of the artists. Part of the exhibition is set up as an archive with interviews and reports on the Korean residents. It provides tools to follow and share the artists’ experiences and the development of their work.
 
Emerging Other can be visited from April 1 – June 19, 2016 in the Arko Art Center of the Arts Council Korea, Seoul, South Korea.
 
The following alumni of Rijksakademie present works in the exhibition and/or are presented in the accompanying publication: Sung Hwan Kim, Kwang-Ju Son, Go Eun Im, Min Oh, Shiu Jin, Goeun Bae, Jisan Ahn and Sanghee Song.
 
Other alumni have also been supported by the Arts Council Korea, namely Jewyo Rhii, Yang Ah Ham, Jisun Kim and Young Eun Kim. Noah Ryu is the 2016 artist-in-residence with an Arko Fellowship.
