Everyday Realities

July 3 – September 19, 2010


1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA 93101

The exhibition Chaotic Harmony was necessarily limited to one work by each of the forty artists due to space and budget considerations.  However, the SBMA  has been activelycollecting works by artists from the Pacific Rim and additional space to showcase recent acquisitions of Korean art expands and enhances the understanding of these vibrant young artists. In conjunction with Chaotic Harmony, Santa Barbara Museum of Art is proud to present ‘Everyday Realities’.

This accompanying exhibition focuses on newly acquired works at the SBMA made by several young, dynamic photographers who live in the Republic of Korea (known in the West as South Korea). The astonishing transformation, and to some extent dislocation, that has taken place in South Korea over the past two decades is reflected in many of these images as photographers strive to give visual expression to the realities of contemporary life. While many of the displayed works reflect the seismic shifts of a changing nation, others are inspired by the extraordinary and timeless beauty of the Korean landscape.

The chosen artists, taken from a large field of promising young talent, represent the unique visual voices being formed in the dynamic climate of South Korea.
