Gyeonggi Museum of Contemporary Ceramic Art (GMoCCA)GMoCCA logo

Since opening in 2001, GMoCCA has grown and become a museum that is truly representative of Korean ceramics. It introduces Korean ceramics to the world and connects the local ceramic community with the world.

By hosting special exhibitions that examine the present state of contemporary ceramic art and seeking a forward-looking approach, the Museum has played a pivotal role in moderating the on-going discussions on ceramic art. It has also served as a space for cultural activities where the realm of ceramic culture can be expanded. The Museum has worked together with the public through educational programs, informative lectures, and career training programs that address the needs of a very specific class of people. And, in close cooperation with world-renowned institutions specialized in art and culture, the Museum promotes exhibitions for international exchange that raise the stature of Korean ceramics on the global stage and residency programs that support exchange of creative work and inspiration by artists all across the world in its eorts to realize the coexistence needed for ceramic art in the future.

To make ceramic art a part of everyday life of Gyeonggi-do Province—and thereby make life richer for all—the Museum will strive to be closer and more familiar to the public. As an important center of world ceramics, the Museum is committed to increasing the values of ceramic art by incessantly communicating with the world.

MI (Museum Identity)

The top priority of GMoCCA is to function as the center of world ceramics, transcending the field of ceramics and regions across the world.

The MI of GMoCCA features diverse forms that can be found in contemporary ceramic works.

GMoCCA Wordmark

● Wordmark

Diverse and interesting forms that can be found in ceramic artworks are applied to ‘GMoCCA’ in a rhythmic way. This wordmark is a combination of an acronym of the Museum’s English name and geometrical forms that represent the essence of ‘ceramics,’ and it projects the identity of GMoCCA effectively.

GMoCCA Logotype

● Logotype

Together with the wordmark, the logotype is a core element of the MI of GMoCCA.

GMoCCA Signature

● Signature (Korean, English)

A combination of the wordmark and logotype designed according to certain standards, the signature is one of the important elements for communication of GMoCCA. .

GMoCCA Color

● Color

The colors of GMoCCA are sky blue and black, which represent water and clay, two essentials of pottery. Color can be used relatively freely in delivering messages on diverse exhibitions and events as well as the identity of the Museum. However, when using colors except for brown and grey, which symbolize land and earth, cool colors should be considered first.​
