The Director of the Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA) is pleased to announce the opening of Tivon Rice’s solo exhibition Arcade Zero.

Current SeMA Artist in Residence and recipient of a 2011 Fulbright Research Grant in Visual Art, Rice has spent the last year studying the speeds and scale of urban transformation in South Korea. Focusing on a number of sites in Seoul, this research has contributed to a diverse body of work, including photography, sculpture, video, sound, and installation, thatexplores how memory is constructed, contained, and altered in space.

Arcade Zero specifically brings together materials observed, collected, and fabricated in Sewoon Market, a soon-to-be-demolished series of arcade blocks in downtown Seoul.   Combining neon lighting, live sound, and delayed video from an array of motion controlled closed-circuit cameras, the system reflects an environment in constant flux; alternately emerging and receding, yet ever out of phase with the surrounding space.

Rice's research is generously supported by The Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS), The Fulbright Commission, The Korean-American Educational Commission, The Seoul Museum of Art, and The University of Washington Graduate School.
