Hyukgue Kwon questions how the practice of curating can represent a multitude of contemporary art that goes beyond the initial articulation of artistic, subjective and cultural framework, without the means of illusive celebration and the management of the arts. Kwon often collaborates with other practitioners, writers and audiences, and his practice mostly involves a critical interpretation of exhibition making and the exploration of various curatorial strategies, challenging the pre-conceived notions of exhibition making.
Hyukgue Kwon (born 1982, Seoul, South Korea) is an independent curator and researcher.
