Synopsis:

Korean Paradise: Korean Traditional Folk & Court Art Exhibition (17 – 23 October) will introduce visitors to Minhwa or Korean folk art developed during the 17th century as part of the Chosun dynasty. Presented by the Singapore Association of Minhwa Art (SAMA), the showcase features works from 19 Korean artists, who each attempt to convey human desire in abstract yet familiar ways. The pursuit of paradise is a common theme that can be found in Minhwa, which serves as a medium to overcome the woes of everyday life.
