Anyeonghaseyo, another trip comes up!!! ^ ^
I know some of you when hear “museum” will be think it’s such a boring place. Well,actually i’m think that way before i visit Daegu art museum. It’s located in 375, Samdeog-dong 053-790-3000. Daegu art museum was opened in May 2011. The exhibition always changed, like now theres 5 exhibition in there.
1. Ottmar Hörl : Hommage to Dürer
Ottmar Hörl (German artist) has displayed his works in an open space where many can visit, not in typical exhibit spaces such as art museums or galleries, as he believes that public places are ideal for installing artworks. You can see these exactly same 12 pinky rabbits and so many people are taking picture here. Like i do :) P.S : Exhibition Period is from February 10, 2015 until December 6, 2015.
Then let’s move in to the building,before enter the gallery of course we should buy the ticket first. Regular price ticket are :

Then I found these unique lamp. Every lamp is different; there's ariel (Mermaid princess), Tinker bell, Jack O, Wonder woman, and the one in the middle i can't seen because there's a guard and they keep watching on us to to enter or near these.
3. Exhibition for the 15th Lee In Sung Art Prize
Kim Jiwon: Wall of Painting
October 13, 2015 ~ February 9, 2016
Daegu Art Museum hold a solo exhibition of the works of Kim Jiwon, winner of the 15th LEE IN SUNGArt Prize, under the title Wall of Painting. At this exhibition, viewers will take a look at the overall body of work by Kim Jiwon, including the Mendrami series, the Takeoff series, and the Similar Wall, Same Wall series, produced between 1998 and 2007, but newly shown in this exhibition as Untitled. Through the artist’s works, spectators will be able to identify his inquiries and solutions with regard to painting over the past 30 years, and to experience the virtues unique to painting amidst the diverse genres of contemporary art.
The LEE IN SUNG Art Prize
The LEE IN SUNG Art Prize was first established in 1999 to pay tribute to artist Lee In Sung and his spirit of art. Lee In Sung (1912~1950), known as the “genius artist from Daegu,” made great achievements in the history of Korean modern art. Since 2014, the award has been re-organized in a new direction, and is hosted by the Daegu Museum of Art. From among the mixture of diverse genres in the recent trends of contemporary art, the new LEE IN SUNG Art Prize selects prominent artists engaged in creative and experimental works, mainly in the field of two-dimensional art, to support the area of painting, which is no longer the mainstream of today’s art scene, and to promote balanced development in Korean contemporary art.

These exhibition are located not in the 1st floor anymore, it’s located in the second floor which we can use between elevator or stairs to go there. There’s 4 rooms there ( 2 for Exhibition for the 15th Lee In Sung Art Prize “Kim Jiwon: Wall of Painting” and 2 others for LEE Myungmi : Tell Me Exihibition).
This exhibition is to touch upon the artist LEE Myungmi and significant and context of her works in the Korean contemporary art history, while broadly understanding her 40-year art history. It will be significant in that a female artist is being spotlighted whose artistic path has been distinctive from the current flow of the art world with the renaissance of monochromes mostly created by male artists in the 1970s. He has explored the genre of ‘paintings’ for over four decades, applying familiar themes and various working methods to her works, and endlessly changing and expanding her own art world.
Then last but not least, The Hyunmin Ryu Exihibition Show.
Actually since 2012 the Daegu Art Museum has presented the Y Artist Project for the purpose of discovering and fostering capable young artists and providing those selected with great opportunities to grow into leading artists at home and abroad. In addition, participants will have a chance to hold their exhibitions at the museum.
5. Hyunmin Ryu (1971- ) Exhibition Show
Who initially majored in photography. He has interpreted his curiosity about the nature of art and casual events taking place within a social structure from his own distinct satirical perspective, transplanting his vision into a variety of mediums. He employs a frame-story structure that is redolent of a theatrical stage in terms of form but sets a series of works representing the feeling of instability and the numerous challenges and frustrations he probably underwent in his everyday life in each booth as seen from the young artist’s point of view.
