In contemporary society, “youthfulness” is no longer an exclusive property of those in their twenties. While Korea has entered the “aged society” faster than any other country in the world, the society constantly stresses the value of remaining young. Youth Before Age, presented by the Coreana Museum of Art, looks into perspectives on “youth,” which has become a complex issue that is closely related to the global phenomenon of aging. The diverse viewpoints of artists included in the exhibition will present an opportunity to dismantle stereotyped and limited images of youth, and thus enable a broader understanding of aging within contemporary culture.
