EIGHTEEN art installations and interactive media art from Korea were opened to the public last June 8 at Korean Cultural Center’s (KCC) ‘Moving Korea’ Exhibit.

The exhibit opened with a short artist’s talk of NA Hyoung-min and performances by KCC’s Musical Class Team.

NA Hyoung-min studied Oriental Painting in Seoul National University where he also earned his Master’s Degree. He is currently serving as a professor in College of Fine Arts at Kyung Hee University.

His works “The Winter Poetry,” “The Moon,” and “The Ring around the Moon” were inspired by Daeboreum or the First Full Moon Holiday in Korea.

Through moving objects, from where the ‘MOVING KOREA’ exhibition takes its name, spectators are given an idea of how interactive media art communicates. The artworks allow visitors to wander through various displayed artworks and be part of the process of creating art.

The artists hope that the spectators will feel the different versions of art through their individual senses and actions.

The ‘Moving Korea’ exhibition will run until July 14, 2017 at the Korean Cultural Center Exhibition Hall. Admission is Free. For more information, contact (02) 555-1711 or email
