Daelim Museum presents COLOR YOUR LIFE, an exhibition of works by leading contemporary designers and global brands on the theme of color, from February 25 to August 21, 2016. This exhibition introduces the processes by which color combines with creative designs of diverse materials to produce new objects that transform our everyday lives.

The exhibition begins with a journey of rediscovery, casting new light on the hidden colors around us through the color-themed photographs of six artists. This is followed by a series of examples of the textures created when color meets materials such as glass, fabric, leather and metal. The exhibition continues with an exploration of the creative processes by which contemporary furniture designers from around the world achieve new developments in color, before concluding with a display of interior designs combining 2016 color trends with masterpiece furniture by leading international designers. The progressive composition of the exhibition, moving from everyday colors to their combinations with other materials, their development through design processes and, finally, their expansion to fill spaces, offers viewers the chance to experience color from a multitude of angles.

The increasing recognition of design as a key element in product success has brought new attention to items that make outstanding use of color. Color trends announced by various companies and institutions each year are widely applied in fashion, furniture, household appliance, interior and other design fields, constantly being re-produced as they touch, directly and indirectly, upon the lives of consumers. Meanwhile, the ever greater importance attached to individual quality of life and aesthetic lifestyles has led to a growing interest in the culture of DIY (Do It Yourself) and creating unique personal spaces.

As color is increasingly used as a means of expressing one’s individuality, our choices of color have become bolder than ever, while its potential to influence our lifestyles is growing constantly.

Through this exhibition, Daelim Museum reveals new value in everyday colors, while presenting innovative possibilities for lifestyle change. Illuminating the creative potential of color, not simply in terms of its aesthetic beauty but in combination with various forms, materials and technologies, it explores the functional uses of color and attempts to achieve a perfect balance among structures, materials and designs.

By demonstrating combinations of color and space, COLOR YOUR LIFE awakens the senses to the hidden aesthetics in everyday life, offering a unique chance to experience the boundless possibilities of color from myriad perspectives.


Daelim Museum
Located in the historic center of Seoul in Korea, Daelim Museum began its life as Korea’s first specialist photography museum in 1997. Today, it holds exhibitions that embrace not only photography but expand its own boundaries. Our vision is to function as a museum where the everyday becomes art. As such, we strive to create exhibitions that suggest new types of lifestyle, allowing the general public to enjoy art within everyday life by casting new light on the value of the objects that surround us.

Daelim Museum plans a variety of exhibitions, events and education programs that offer the general public the chance to enjoy art and culture on a fun and intimate level. In 2015, we plan to open D Museum, a bigger exhibition venue in the new neighborhood of Seoul. This plan aims to both expand the scale of the museum and present new, progressive and creative exhibitions that reflect the spatial and local character of the new space.
