Uncoverings: The Search for Identity in Lithuanian Photography, commemorating the 30th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between Lithuania and the Republic of Korea, is the first exhibition to introduce Lithuanian art photography in South Korea. The exhibition, which outlines from the beginning of Lithuanian photography to the present, examines how Lithuanian photography has progressed in the course of history and how Lithuanian identity has been expressed in the photographs. The exhibition is chronologically organized into three parts based on historical background:‘Identity as Reality,’ ‘Identity as an Object,’ and ‘Identity as a Concept.’

Lithuania’s political upheaval and historical context, which influenced not just the arts but the worldview of individuals, are important in understanding this exhibition. The exhibition presents the collections of The Lithuanian National Museum of Art supplemented with the works borrowed from artists. It introduces works from various periods covering from the iconic photographs of the so-called national “gold mine” to the works of young artists. Instead of simply presenting linear flow of Lithuanian photography, the exhibition aims to introduce the past trajectory and current status of Lithuanian photography tridimensionally through the works that have had a pivotal influence on the formation of Lithuanian identity at individual, regional, and national levels.
