The Embassy of the Republic of Korea and the Korean Cultural Centre are pleased to co-host <ONE INSPIRATION: The Very First Ideas from Korean Tradition and Culture> exhibition with the Savina Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul, which will be presented at the Korean Cultural Centre Gallery and the Gallery 101 from November 22 and 23 respectively.

Curated by the Savina Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul, <One Inspiration: The Very First Ideas from Korean Tradition and Culture> exhibition introduces works by ten nationally and internationally recognized Korean artists of contemporary art, featuring their paintings, photographs, sculptures and video installations.  The exhibition is structured with 3 different themes; the Origin of Ancestors-Myths and Religion; The Life of Ancestors-Flavor of Life; the Inventions of Ancestors-Hangeul and Hanji.

The exhibition aims to promote the aesthetics of Korean tradition around the world and to locate the roots of contemporary Korean art in traditional culture. Bridging the past, present and future, traditional Korean culture provides artists with boundless sources of ideas. This exhibition is an attempt to shed lights on the creative process of those ten established artists and to find their very first ideas stemming from Korea’s unique tradition; the exhibits reveal how their art reflects this.
