Thirty years have passed since the 88 Seoul Olympic. The 24th Seoul Olympic Games were held under the slogan of "Harmony and Progress", the biggest Olympic event with 160 countries. On September 19th, 1979, it was started to bring in. In September 1981, the official Olympic Games were decided. From the moment we were ready to host the Olympics to the end, it was no wonder that many people's cooperation and efforts followed the successful Olympics.
Seoul Museum of Art was established at Seosomun-dong 37, the present location from 2000, but temporarily opened its doors to the premiere of the Olympic Games in Seoul on August 20, 1988. Strictly, 88 Seoul Olympics is the starting point of Seoul Museum of Art. 1988 Seoul Olympic Festival of Arts and Culture (currently the Art Olympic), which presents the symbolic meaning of the Olympics to the world as a culture, is lacking in the cultural infrastructure to hold the event. Therefore, Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul Arts Center, The cultural facility will be ready at the end of the preparation period of three years and will have a big event. Seoul Museum of Art also hosted official art events such as the 88 Seoul Art Festival.
Seoul Museum of Art collected works related to the Olympics, which was the starting point of the museum, The collections related to the Olympic Games were packed as they were donated by the artist or bought and found works related to the Olympics. Based on the collection related to the Olympics, this exhibition take a look at the 'Olympics', the starting point of the Seoul Museum of Art, as a collection, and hope to have an opportunity to read about our art, which we were about to show at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
