The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA) initially opened its doors inside Gyeongbok Palace with only four staffers. Fifty years later, the MMCA has since become one of the most prominent contemporary art organizations in Korea with four branches and 8,417 artworks in its collection.
The museum commemorates its 50th anniversary with "The Square: Art and Society in Korea 1900-2019," an exhibition held across three of its branches for the first time.

A FOURTEEN-HOUR FLIGHT from New York, I couldn’t remember the code to my grandmother’s apartment, until it came back like muscle memory: 1945, the year of national liberation for my grandparents, who were in middle school when the Japanese occupation of Korea ended. The persistence of the country’s ancient Confucian moral codes are refracted and jumbled through memories of imperial rule and aspirational neoliberalism in modern Seoul, and compounding deep-rooted hostilities against our former colonizer are the recent trade standoffs; the astonishing sense of kinship among Koreans manifests in ongoing boycotts of Uniqlo and Lexus, as well as their curtailment of travel to Japan.

SEOUL, Oct. 16 (Korea Bizwire) — What started as a humble national art museum with a four-person staff in the backyard of the Gyeongbok royal palace in central Seoul in 1969 has grown into arguably the biggest art space in Asia half a century later.
Now in possession of more than 8,000 art pieces, the one and only South Korean national art museum, the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA), marks its 50th anniversary this month.
