Recently we saw the exhibition by 60 young Korean artists working in London: primarily students and recent graduates. In our focus on the exciting new talent coming out of the colleges, many of whom return to Korea once their visas run out, sometimes we overlook the Koreans who have made their home here. The Korean Artists Association UK is an organisation made up primarily of Korean-born artists – in the broadest sense of the word – who have settled in the UK. I’m told that the KAA has been in existence for 15 years, though I’ve only been close to it for the past 3 or 4 years. For the past three summers it has held an entertaining event at the Korean Cultural Centre showcasing the talents of some of its performers – dancers, musicians and a poet – and last year held an exhibition there at the same time.
The KAA is always on the lookout for new members. Do join, using the contact email below. I’m a guest member myself.
