Artland: An Installation by Do Ho Suh and Children

January 27–May 5, 2024

Enter an enchanting world of color and clay, Spocky Trees and Slimes. Artland is a fantastical ecosystem dreamed up in 2016 by artist Do Ho Suh (born Seoul, South Korea, 1962) and his two young daughters. This ever-growing and evolving series of islands is inhabited by characters and landscapes sculpted from nontoxic clay. There is no government or monarchy (though Slimes are known to have board meetings); buses look like floating rings and have no drivers. On Artland, most things are gender neutral—anyone and everyone can express themselves however they please.

As Artland circles the globe, from London to Seoul to Brooklyn, visitors are invited to add to its diverse species of plants and creatures and help imagine the possibilities of an alternate world. With these contributions, Artland has become an expanding platform that celebrates the creativity of a child’s mind.

Artland: An Installation by Do Ho Suh and Children inaugurates a dedicated gallery space within the Museum’s newly renovated Toby Devan Lewis Education Center. Find out more about the center, which allows us to offer expanded access to programs and presentations that highlight our ongoing commitment to arts education and community engagement.

Artland: An Installation by Do Ho Suh and Children is on view and open to the public for art-making during regular museum hours (Wednesdays–Sundays, 11 am–6 pm). Through April 10, 2024, the exhibition is closed to the public on Wednesdays, 11 am–12:30 pm and 4–5:30 pm. On First Saturdays, Artland closes at 4 pm.
