National Museum of Contemporary Art information
The best reason for making the trip out to Seoul Grand Park is to visit this large and striking museum spread out over three floors and surrounded by a sculpture garden. The dazzling highlight is Nam June Paik’s The More the Better, an 18m-tall pagoda-shaped video installation that uses 1000 flickering screens to make a comment on our increasingly electronic universe. Construction of an annex in Seoul’s Samcheon-dong district is underway, scheduled for completion in 2013.
