Have you heard about Avant-garde? They are the innovative artists who first started to look more than reality using pictures in France. Their life and spirit have come back to us.

Seoul Arts Center opens ‘The Great Exhibition of French Photograph’ from September 10th to October 29th. In this exhibition, there are many pictures from the great photo artists of the 20th century on display. The director of the exhibition, Shin Soo-ji, prepared the exhibition with respect to the challenging spirit of the Avant-garde which tried to look into the inner world of photograph, not just the reality.

Shin Soo-ji says their challenging spirit has made photography into an art field. When the camera first came to the world, there were not many people who thought that pictures could be art. That is why the Avant-garde’s spirits are considered innovative in the art world.

This exhibition shows us the principles of the way Avant-garde viewed the world. Shin Soo-ji organized the French photographer’s view and thought about looking into the inner world through pictures. She classified the pictures into 7 categories according to the principle.

The principle that classified the picture will help those who don’t know about the photography. Nearby the exit door of the exhibition, there is an art shop that sells books which contain information explaining about the important Avant-garde photographers and their photos.

Shin Soo-ji had wrote the book for those who want to learn more about this exhibition. In addition, beside the art shop there is a camera pavilion. Various types of cameras and their history are included in the exhibit as well. Also a video educational pavilion stands right behind the camera pavilion. There is a ten minutes long educational video that briefly tells us about the subject of exhibition, composition and explanation about the pictures.

When we were high school students, we put a lot of time in studying for the University entrance exam, after entering a university we study to get a job, and after getting a job we have to study to stay employed. Most of us must think that we are living in a ‘dog-eat-dog’ world.

But after watching those who are enjoying their own quiet time at the exhibition in the Seoul Arts Center, we can see that there are still a lot of people who are trying to manage their life abundantly. How can a life with art be desolate? This is what I thought after watching many people in the Seoul Arts Center.
