Walk through sound at Busan Museum of Art
The Busan Museum of Art presents a modern art exhibition for children. The exhibition "Neverland Soundland: Kwon Byungjun-Sound Walk," will be open through Aug. 22.
In 2020, the Busan Museum of Art played host to the light-themed exhibition "Neverland Lightland: Land of Light and Imagination." Following its success, the new sound-themed collection, "Neverland Soundland," shows five themed artworks by Kwon Byungjun, who majored in electronic music and media art at the Royal Conservatory at the Hague in the Netherlands. His works have been on display worldwide, in locations such as the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts in Taiwan and the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul. Multiple artworks have been stored in Seoul Museum of Art and the Busan Museum of Contemporary Art.
Some exhibits visitors can experience are "3D Sound Hall for Children" a special sound experience, "Landscapes and Landscapes" based on the scales of the Korean traditional musical instrument the Pyeongyeong, "Aerial Garden" a speaker installation and "Singing Hand Gestures" a hands-on sound artwork. Also, in the museum's outdoor area, you can wear provided headphones and experience the exhibit "The Forest of Mysterious Truth4-Lullaby of Multicultural Families."
