■ ‘Cultural Heritage Media Art Exhibition’ Embodies Korean Cultural Heritage with Digital Technology At the 2023 <Visit KOREAN HERITAGE Campaign London Reception>, the cultural heritage media art exhibition ‘Here with You – The Beauty of Korean Heritage’ has also commenced. Utilizing AI technology, the media art exhibition, which consists of four spaces:
▲ “The Key to Korea”
▲ “A New K-Heritage”
▲ “May Your Wishes Come True”
▲ “A Window’ to Korea”, reinterprets five representative Korean cultural heritage sites (Changdeokgung Palace, Seongsan Ilchulbong, Suwon Hwaseong, Andong Hahoe Village, and Bulguksa Temple) in the painting style of renowned British artists.
In addition, exhibition space was set aside for the beautifully decorated “Yeondeonghoe” (lantern lighting festival), a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, officially registered in 2020, to express the hope that the exchange between Korea and the United Kingdom through cultural heritage will continue for 140 years and beyond for generations to come. The media art exhibition is open to visitors to the Korean Cultural Center UK until November 25. On October 28, more than 30 museum curators and experts from across Europe who participated in the “2023 Workshop for Korean Art Curators in Europe” held at the British Museum in the UK viewed the exhibition and had a chance to exchange culture and art from their respective countries. “In preparation for the state visit and to commemorate the 140th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Korea and the United Kingdom, this is a great opportunity to showcase the beauty of Korean cultural heritage in the UK,” said Sun Seung-hye, Director of the Korean Cultural Center UK, “and we are honored to host this event with the Cultural Heritage Administration of Korea and the Korea Cultural Heritage Foundation at a crucial time when Korean Wave fans are expanding their interest into traditional Korean culture.”
