Thanks to our friends at Curbed LA, we learn that LACMA has wrapped its Ahmanson Building in a rainbow of fabrics for its upcoming show, “Your Bright Future: 12 Contemporary Artists from South Korea (June 28-Sept. 20).
It’s the first major museum exhibition in the U.S. featuring South Korean contemporary art. The installation above , called Welcome, 2009, was designed by Choi Jeong-Hwa. Yes, it seems like a good time to be Korean in LA. What with Korean investors putting up cash for two of the city’s newest skyscrapers; with Koreatown expanding into Little Tokyo and elsewhere; and of course with the season ripe for Korean Angelenos favorite sport, golf, the future looks bright indeed!
