◆Yinka Shonibre MBE: Wilderness into a Garden
‣ Exhibition Period : May 30 – October 18, 2015
British-born Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare MBE (b.1962, London) is an acclaimed contemporary African artist known for his superb aesthetic sensibility. As a dark-complected individual raised in a white society, he unflinchingly examines how Eurocentrism and racism are deeply and unthinkingly embedded in Western society. However, his works are approachable, for his criticism of imperialism, colonialism and the distortions of history that lie at the root of racism and Eurocentrism are tempered by a sense of humor.

◆ Ottmar Hörl: Hommage to Dürer
‣ Exhibition Period : February 10 - December 6
‣ Venue : Daegu Art Museum Outdoor Park
Ottmar Hörl has displayed his works in an open space where many can visit, not in typical exhibit spaces such as art museums or galleries, as he believes that public places are ideal for installing artworks. He attempts to break down the realistic restriction of the term “art” which denotes that works of art are only installed in restricted spaces such as art museums and galleries, posing a question of “What is contemporary art?” in this process.
