The Seoul Museum of Art is holding an exhibition titled “2013 Seoul Focus (Beyond Korean Painting)” at the Buk Seoul Museum of Art from December 20, 2013 to February 9, 2014.

Composed of 30 artworks that include drawings, paintings, photos and sculptures, the Seoul Focus exhibition (previously titled the Seoul Art Exhibition) focuses intensively on the creative and experimental tendency among 12 invited artists who are now in their 30s and 40s. This exhibition aims to enhance visitors’ understanding and appreciation of the production techniques of Korean paintings by offering a number of exhibition-related programs specially designed to enable them to try their hand at applying techniques of Korean painting themselves with the help of participating artists.

The exhibit helps visitors understand the evolution of Korean paintings through the works of these artists who continue to explore contemporary art trends.
