  • Information
    Introduction
    The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul (MMCA Seoul) opened in 2013 as a branch location of the MMCA, opened in 1986 in Gwacheon. The museum site is where Korea’s historical and political developments were achieved. Most of the old buildings are gone but a few still remains to remind people of its significant role. What makes the Seoul branch different from the others is that it introduced Korea’s traditional architectural concept of ‘madang’, which is a spacious courtyard where people can come in and gather together to socialize. Equipped with facilities including a reference center, a project gallery theater and a multipurpose hall, MMCA Seoul strives to accommodate every mode of new artistic endeavor and to communicate with the public.
