The exhibition is the world’s largest retrospective of conceptual artist Michael Craig Martin. Here, about 150 original paintings since the 1970s, including specially produced digital installations, are displayed.

Among them, Cha Eun-woo served as an audio docent for 26 of Michael Craig Martin’s representative works. The audience, who got to listen to Cha Eun Woo’s unique delivery voice, expressed excellent responses. 

Michael Craig Martin shared in April that: “I felt Cha Eun Woo’s background knowledge and broad understanding of contemporary art. I was able to confirm his deep affection for a participation as our Voice Ambassador,” he said.

Responding to this, Cha Eun Woo also said: “It was a new experience. I am honored to be able to work with you as a voice ambassador. Through my special audio guide, I hope audiences enjoy memorable experiences at the exhibition.”
