Newly appointed director of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA) Youn Bummo announced, “The MMCA is reinforcing its public service duty by demonstrating Korean art’s identity and strengthening cooperative networks with diverse regions to emerge as a globally prominent museum beyond an Asian art central,” and expressed confidence in his vision to “make MMCA a friendly, open, fun, yet systemized museum." With 50 years of history since its first opening, the MMCA is evaluating its achievements and limitations over the past half-century and is looking ahead to prepare for a new leap into the future. The next 50 years will be dedicated to reinforcing the museum’s role as a central hub of contemporary art and culture in order to become “a globally open museum that shares cultural arts with the world” to create “a more compassionate and imaginative society through art."
