DESCRIPTION

Canvas International Art and Nieuw Dakota proudly present

an exhibition by the Korean curator Yun Cheagab (e.g. Arario Gallery,

Koreans Pavillion Venice Biennale 2011) in both their art spaces.

Yun brings us eleven talents from Korea and China. They belong to a young

generation of artists that freed themselves from transcendental grand

discourses and questions such as ‘Is it Capitalism or Socialism?’, ‘Is it

revolution or amelioration?’ or ‘Is it Elitism or Populism?’.

This generation is often misinterpreted as ‘immature’ and with no seriousness, but within

their cynical personalities, they have passionate feelings towards society

and humanity. This young generation of artists blossoms through their

virtual resistance by means of social criticism and self-reflection that few

of their seniors have used.
