The exhibition Nevertheless, History Continues commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the March 1st Movement and the Establishment of the Korean Provisional Government by spotlighting the meaning of the March 1st Movement with worldwide and contemporary perspective, and Interprets it through media arts. 1919 March 1st Movement is regarded as one of the most significant national anniversaries in Korean modern history. As Korean Cultural Center promoting Korea to outside the nation, we try to present the spirit of 3.1 Movement through media art, the most contemporary medium instead of directly informing the historical fact. We grasped the implication that 3.1 Movement messages to the contemporary society as ‘the eager for freedom from the suppression’, and ‘endeavor for better society’. The art pieces of seven artists, all direct forward these two concepts. This exhibition was co-presented by Korean Cultural Center in Hong Kong, ifva, Hong Kong Arts Centre, and MMCA (National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea) Residency Goyang. MMCA Residency Goyang presented four Korean artists from their Residency in 2017 and 2018, LEE Minha, AN Yuri, LEE Jaeuk and SHIN Jungkyun. ifva presented three artists Jess LAU, Chloë CHEUK, and TUNG Wing Hong.
