Sunday afternoon, a couple of friends and I went to the opening exhibit of the new ARA Modern Art Museum in Insadong. This exhibit was an inspiring and creative presentation called “Life Is Beautiful” by pop artist Thierry Guetta, who goes by the name Mr. Brainwash. Guetta is a French-born artist based in Los Angeles.
The ARA is well suited to big art, with 4 stories of both large and small spaces and a big open area in the center. The exhibit was originally scheduled to leave September 25th, but has been extended to October 30th. Do yourself a favor and check it out before it’s gone! For only a ₩10,000 entrance fee, you will be introduced to a varied and fertile imagination.
