Highsnobiety-tapped photographer and artist Coco Capitán for our exclusive “Short For Magazine” Issue 004, has now unveiled her new solo exhibition, Is It Tomorrow Yet?, at the Daelim Museum in Seoul.
Presented for the first time in Asia, the exhibition is essentially an all-encompassing window into the artist’s unique perspective on the world, with the inclusion of 150 works, spanning across different media, including photography, painting, handwriting, video and installation.
Combining intimacy and playfulness with subtle social critique, as well as probing questions concerned with existing values and hierarchies, Capitán provides her contemporary interpretation of pop art to imagination-based paintings and handwriting works that encapsulate her mixed emotions in a witty manner. Her thoughts about the present and anxiety about the future are also explored, as her works seek to provide those struggling with uncertainties in life with an opportunity to feel a touch of empathy.
For more info, head over to Daelim Museum’s official website. The exhibition runs from August 2 until January 27, 2019.
