The Korean Cultural Centre is doing a repeat performance of last year’s “Entry Forms” show, in which Korean artists based in the UK are invited to submit work for an independently curated exhibition. Entries are due by the end of August.
The Korean Cultural Centre UK and British Council are looking for artists and designers of Korean origin working in the UK or holding significant links with Korea.
The selected artists’ work will be exhibited at the Korean Cultural Centre in December 2009.
The aim of the exhibition is to showcase current British-based Korean talent in the visual arts and will be selected by a panel of judges organised by the Korean Cultural Centre.
The Korean Cultural Centre will be responsible for insuring the works during exhibition and transit, organizing pick-up and redelivery of the work within the UK, installation and dismantling. A small catalogue will be produced on occasion of the exhibition. All Participants will receive complimentary invitations to the opening reception as well as copies of the catalogue.
