I am very pleased to share the mission of Daejeon Museum of Art. DMA aims for sharing art with people across the nation and abroad in all its endeavors. It serves as a beloved resource of Daejeon Arts for both artists and art-lovers and contributes to the Korean art history. Cooperated with Daedeok Innopolis, the Research and Development Special Zone, DMA explores new areas of art oriented by science and technology.
1. Museum presents Daejeon Art.
DMA establishes the big data system of local art history to collect, document, and interpret artists of Daejeon area and their art works. It provides information and perspective on Daejeon arts for exhibitions, education, and promotion through time. The Museum is a place in which to write Daejeon art history.
2. Art hyper-connects Citizen.
DMA is a place in which to communicate people to people through arts. DMA promotes the hyper-connection with people, cultural organizations, universities, and research institute in Daejeon. Sharing art programs based on hyper-connection provides museum visitors with the aesthetic challenge and leads to a greater cultural discernment. It celebrates diverse cultures for citizens and diversifies a new and broader art.
3. Art and Science Imagine Future.
DMA creates exhibitions and education programs of the emerging art and art-forms with science and technologies in cooperation with Daedeok Innopolis, the Research and Development Special Zone, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, and universities in Daejeon. DMA accommodates a wide range of art-science experiences and provides artists, scientists, engineers, and its public with insights of future into emerging art-science forms.
DMA seeks to acquire Daejeon citizen’s refined life which is culturally significant and educationally meaningful.
