Temporary gallery shows the art of construction
The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, based in Gwacheon, Gyeonggi, unveiled the temporary gallery at its new Seoul branch on Thursday.
Construction is set to be completed in June, according to the builder, GS E&C. It has been delayed four months from the initial schedule due to a fire at the site last August.
On the first floor of the temporary gallery, visitors can see an architectural model of the new Seoul museum, an interactive media art piece and video clips about the museum’s collection. On the second floor, visitors can view the construction progress through a large glass window. The gallery will operate until the end of April, and admission is free.
Its official abbreviation has also been changed from NMOCA to MMCA, she said.
