The museum of SKKU opens its 34th special exhibition, “Facing Faces,” from October 5 to December 27. The museum is located on the first basement floor of the 600th Anniversary Hall in the Humanities and Social Sciences Campus. The goal of the exhibition is to explore the ideal role model of leaders and question the definition of a true leader in modern society. Ten leaders from diverse fields of Korean history will be introduced. For example, for political and social domain, Kim Koo and Lyuh Woon-hyung, both politicians and independence activators, are presented as key figures in the Korean independence movement. Paik Nam-Jun, a world-famous video artist, was also suggested as a cultural leader. Among the ten leaders, Kim Chang-sook, the founder of Sungkyunkwan University, was also included. The exhibition consists of both art works and artifacts. 13 artists participated in the exhibition, reinterpreting the lives of the ten leaders. Visitors can also watch death masks, or casts of the face taken right after a person’s death, of Kim Koo and Lyuh Woon-hyung. Moreover, two letters by Kim Chang-sook and some works by Shin Chae-ho, such as Donggookgeogul Choedotongjeon and Muaesango is to be unveiled to the public for the first time. Jo Hwan, the head of the museum said, “there is a special merit of opening an art exhibition in a museum. While it can provide accurate information about the theme of the exhibition, it also gives room for audiences to interpret the exhibition on their own.”
