Articulate This year marks the sixth edition of ARTSPECTRUM that aims to promote emerging artists in Korea. In light of the changing art context, what has the Leeum articulated regarding contemporaneity, and what should it be?
Responsive Seeing arts as a social intervention in its broadest sense, how are young artists detecting and dealing with political, economic and cultural changes, and how are they reacting and responding to them?
Time-travelling To delve into and reinterpret historical issues can give an insight into today's life. How could this lead to the redefinition of linear relationship between past, present, future?
Story-telling What are the artistic ways like, in which a certain subject matter having the potential for storytelling is found and its layers of meaning are interwoven into a narrative in a convincing manner?
Personal While taking a family story or an individual's peculiar circumstances as a driving force of artistic explorations, in what ways do artists seek to make it more than personal?
Experiential The agency of spectators as an active subject is sometimes prerequisite for an artwork. If so, to what extent is the experience of spectators commensurate with the artist's intention?
Cooperative It is not rare that artworks are realized by commissioning such experts in different fields as scientists or novelists, and collaborating with other artists. What issues can be brought up in terms of collective authorship?
Transgressive The artist's role is expanding into the realm of curator, designer, filmmaker, etc. Is it possible to say that this is not only for practical reasons but is to contribute to broadening the horizon of new artistic composition?
Referential Some artists collects material, look for references, and carry out artistic research as social scientists do. Isn't there a danger of falling into the trap of complacency about the subject matter as it is?
Utopian Does the exhibition enable a glimpse of their optimistic belief in the power of art and earnest efforts in practice despite the hardship that young artists have to pass through?
Missing What is missing so far? What has yet to be filled in? What should be achieved in the next edition of ARTSPECTRUM?
