Playground exhibition

NOBUDAM space presents our second exhibition “Playground” at the Art Number 23 Gallery in London from 8th to 12th June 2019, displaying the works of 26 Korean student artists. There will be a wide range of genres from painting, installation, photograph, performance to music.

NOBUDAM space, deriving from the words “no” and “bu-dam,” meaning “pressure” in Korean, (hence, “no pressure”) is a platform that provides everyone an opportunity to reveal their artistic potential. We are very pleased to share the fine talents of young artists who have put a lot of effort into the exhibition, and we would like this event to be a venue for celebrating different artistic passions and talents. We would be grateful for your interest and support to the second exhibition of NOBUDAM space.

The purpose of this exhibition is to show that anyone with passion can be an artist, regardless of expertise or genre. To achieve this purpose, we are honoured to host our young artists from diverse academic disciplines.

With the global increase in social network usage on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Youtube, our leisure time has become dominated by social media. At NOBUDAM’s second exhibition, we are honoured to host 26 artists who will be showcasing their unique hobbies creatively in response to the uniformity of our free time.

Entitled Playground, this exhibition presents 6 themes represented by 6 rides:
Bench, Slide, Climbing Frame, Swing, See-saw, Merry-go-round

So please come and explore our playground, no pressure!
