Art in Busan in the 1960s and ‘70s: A Beginning without an End is organized as part of a series of exhibitions by Busan Museum of Art to establish the local art history of the city and the identity of its art scene, which has been continued since the inauguration of the museum. In 2018, the museum held a survey exhibition to observe the art in Busan between the years 1928 and 1953, a period when Busan was designated as the temporary capital of the war-torn peninsula. In 2020, the museum focuses on the art in Busan between the 1960s and ‘70s. In particular, the exhibition investigates the peculiar period in which the first generation artists in Busan were active while the second and third generations were bridging modern and contemporary art as well as figurative and abstract art.
