How can the voice, the sonic, and the aural structure an exhibition and construct the methodology of a curatorial practice? Open lecture by South Korean curator and writer Seewon Hyun.
In this lecture, curator and writer Seewon Hyun presents three curatorial projects that were manifested in Seoul. The three projects share a common denominator in working with archives, memory, site-specificity, and voice, whereby Hyun's curatorial processes are an artistic investigation to physically manifest the invisible, fleeting, and ephemeral histories.
Seewon Hyun is invited to KHiO by The academy of fine art and will together with the writer and artist Jeuno JE Kim hold the workshop
1+1=세모 (trekant), on performance writing, scoring, and scripting for our students this week. The lecture is open to the public.
There will be an Q&A with Seewon Hyun and Jeuno JE Kim after the lecture.
