Ogamdo: 5 Scenes of Korean Art
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Korea-UAE diplomatic relations, and in collaboration with Manarat Al Saadiyat, Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the republic of Korea and Ministry of Culture and Youth of the United Arab Emirates bring various cultural events to both countries.
This exhibition under the title of Ogamdo: 5 Scenes of Korean Art is viewed from the following five perspectives: ‘new tradition’, ‘city montage’, ‘reconstruction of culture’, ‘everyday affair’ and ‘landscape through the mind’s eye’.
The intention is to show the original Korean sentiment through different aspects, from traditional Korean life to the present day’s mixed cultures and our state of minds living in this fast-paced country.
Around 40 pieces of work from 14 Korean artists who are currently active both at home and abroad will unveil the Korean artistic spirit which would simultaneously bring to the international audience the feelings of uniqueness and universality.
