Gangdong-gu, Seoul (mayor Lee Jung hun) announced on the 15th that it will hold the 2021 Gangdong Sculpture Symposium in front of Amsa History Park Square in Gangdong-gu from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. until the 20th.
It will be held under the theme of "Sunrise Again," which means the image of Gangdong-gu, where the sun rises first in Seoul, expectations for daily life to be restored after COVID-19, and wishing for a hopeful future.
Unlike existing exhibition events that exhibited completed sculptures, Gangdong Sculpture Symposium is a new type of sculpture exhibition that encourages artists' desire to create and provides in-depth artistic attractions to visitors by showing themselves to produce their works on the spot.
The 2021 Gangdong Sculpture Symposium will feature Kim Taek-ki, a famous Taekwondo V writer, Kim Byung-kyu, a Pop Artist Storyteller for Cities and Humans, and Nam Ji-hyung, a writer who shows novel artistic sensibility for Circulation and New Beginning.
Residents' participation programs include a resident docent program held by Gangdong residents from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, a sculpture neon sign making experience from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday, and a clay sculpture making experience event.
In addition, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the 17th, a "cultural forum" will be held at the Prehistoric Museum in Amsa-dong where experts and residents in the formative arts field can meet in person. This program visits residents with two themed lectures: "Diversity of Contemporary Art and Formative Art Trend" and "How to Enjoy Sculpture in Daily Life" to help them understand the sculpture genre that felt far away.
