National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA) Deoksugung
Contacts & Details
MMCA Deoksugung is housed in Seokjojeon, the first modern stone building in Korea. The museum opened its doors to the public in 1998 with the purpose of building a systematic approach towards Korean modern art, and of realizing the country’s cultural and historical identity. While MMCA Gwacheon mainly focuses on contemporary art, MMCA Deoksugung emphasizes Korean modern art from around 1900 to 1960, as well as Asian and international modern art. Along with organizing exhibitions, the museum invests in research and development, education programs, academic activities and publications, and the international exchange of information on modern art.
