PLATEAU, Samsung Museum of Art is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Bae Young-whan entitled Song for Nobody. The artist’s unique oeuvre examines the fragility of human innocence against the harsh realities of Korean society, expressed through the theme of sentimental pop songs. This exhibition provides a comprehensive view of Bae’s artistic achievements over the past fifteen years, from his first solo exhibition in 1997 to the latest works.
Examining the aspects of romance and rebellion inherent in pop songs, Bae implemented the emotional power of pop songs that influence our collective social memory into his works, proposing a new model of Korean pop art.
