Description Tell Me Tell Me: Australian and Korean Art 1976 - 2011 is a major new exhibition of Korean and Australian contemporary art celebrating 2011 as the Australian-Korean Year of Friendship. The project highlights the historical and ongoing connections between Australian and Korean art and showcases works from the collections of both museums. The exhibition is a first-time collaboration between the MCA in Sydney and the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul (NMOCA) and is the first stage in a two-part cultural exchange of art and ideas. It is inspired by Nam June Paik’s 1976 visit to Sydney and the 1976 Biennale of Sydney, that included a group of important Korean artists. Tell Me Tell Me explores conceptual, fluxus and technological art being created in both Korea and Australia at that time and regional variations in both countries over three decades to the present day. The exhibition also explores the idea of artists using recent art histories to influence new work and sculpture, installation and object-based art forms now under the weight of conceptualism. The core of the exhibition comprises a significant collection of historical works by important artists from both countries, including Nam June Paik, Marr Grounds, Terry Reid, Noel Sheridan, Stelarc, Ken Unsworth, Shim Moon-Seup, Kang So-Lee, Insic Quik, Rosalie Gascoigne, Gaiyabidja Lalara, Don Gundinga and Lee U Fan. The contemporary Australian and Korean artists featured include Brook Andrew, Louise Weaver, Nyapanyapa, Charlie Sofo, Brown Council, Lou Hubbard, Stuart Ringholt, TV Moore, Beom Kim, Park Chan Kyong, Haegue Yang, Kim Eull, Hyun Ki Park, Chung Seo-Young, Jooyeon Park. Jointly curated by MCA Curator Glenn Barkley and NMOCA Curator Inhye Kim, the exhibition will be held at the National Art School Gallery, Darlinghurst and will open on 17 June 2011. It will later travel to the NMOCA in Seoul where it will be exhibited from 8 November 2011 to 19 February 2012. This exhibition is a partnership between the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australia and the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea. Supported by the Australian Government through the Australia International Cultural Council, an initiative of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
