NATIONAL MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART

Jingyeong, or “real scenery,” were artists’ reflections, both real and serene, of scenery in 17th- and 18th-century Korea. Contemporary artists explore this ancient style of depicting the natural world and suggest ways for humans to coexist with it. The themes are nature, scenery, mountains, water and cities. Gwacheon,
