Seoul, Korea - The ASEAN-Korea Centre (Secretary General Kim Young-sun) will organize the ASEAN Art Exhibition from 25 July to 20 August 2017 at Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP), Seoul, Korea. The Exhibition will feature over 60 diverse artworks, ranging from oil paintings to installation art, by 30 young artists from the 10 ASEAN Member States, and will be held in conjunction with the 2017 Asian Students Young Artists Art Festival (ASYAAF 2017).

 

Kim Young-sun, Secretary General of the ASEAN-Korea Centre noted that, “Marking the ASEAN-ROK Cultural Exchange Year and 50th Anniversary of ASEAN, the ASEAN-Korea Centre is organizing this Exhibition for the first time with an aim to introduce remarkable artworks by young ASEAN artists and promote the exchange among ASEAN and Korean artists. I hope this Exhibition will not only be a stepping stone for promising ASEAN artists, but also a good chance for the Korean public to see their potential and purchase quality artworks.”

 

The Opening Ceremony will be held on 25 July, where Kim Young-sun, Secretary General of the ASEAN-Korea Centre, Long Dimanche, Ambassador of Cambodia and Chair of the ASEAN Committee in Seoul, as well as Ambassadors and diplomats from ASEAN Embassies are anticipated to attend.

They will take part in the ASEAN-Korea Art Forum, visit the Seoul National University (SNU) Museum of Art and enjoy a networking session with SNU art students, and take a tour of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) and other nearby galleries.
