Coco Capitán: Is It Tomorrow Yet?
August 2, 2018 - January 27, 2019
Daelim Museum presents <Is It Tomorrow Yet?>, a solo exhibition of Coco Capitán, a photographer and artist who was chosen as a
‘Young Art Star’ and is drawing wide attention from global brands and media, for the first time in Asia. The exhibition features some 150 works
consisting of photography, paintings, handwritings, videos and installations by the artist who has candidly and audaciously expressed herself
in unconventional ways.
The artist’s works freshly resonate with the fields of both commercial and fine art. The photographs are marked by an atypical color scheme and
composition while the handwritten aphorisms make sincere statements of the feelings and represent the voices of the millennial generation.
Her recent project with Gucci on the Art Wall and ‘capsule collection’ especially gained wide public interest and international acclaim and is considered
one of the most successful artistic collaborations with a fashion brand.
The exhibition showcases Coco Capitán’s art world, ranging from installations that provide her contemporary interpretation of pop art to
imagination-based paintings and handwriting works that encapsulate her mixed emotions in a witty manner. Laden with thoughts about the present
and anxiety about the future, her works will provide those of us who are also struggling with uncertainties in life with an opportunity to feel a touch
of comfort and empathy.
