Marking the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Korean Cultural Centre last year, the Korean Cultural Centre Australia in partnership with the REAL DMZ PROJECT presents Negotiating Borders, Sydney an international exhibition of the work of renowned Korean artists.

Taking place in the Korean Cultural Centre Gallery, Negotiating Borders, Sydney reflects on the past and present situations of the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), a strip of land running across the Korean Peninsula. The exhibition uses the unprecedented times we currently live in as a metaphor for the possibility of a new future between North and South Korea.  

Presented across a gallery space within the Korean Cultural Centre, the exhibition features works by top Korean artists, showing moments of border-crossing and correspondence between the two Koreas in varying ways and degrees. 

Artists: Kyungah Ham, Sojung Jun, Heinkuhn Oh, Daejin Choi, Jane Jin Kaisen, Woosung Lee, Kyung Jin Zoh & Hye Ryeong Cho, YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES

The REAL DMZ PROJECT was conceived in 2011 to explore the (in)visible borders of the DMZ through the critical lens of contemporary art and to raise awareness about the division of Korea. 

As part of this exhibition, there will also be an artist video screening and talk at the National Art School on Thursday 24 March. 

Negotiating Borders, Sydney is presented by the Korean Cultural Centre in partnership with the REAL DMZ PROJECT and supported by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Korea and the Korean Foundation for International Cultural Exchange as part of the Travelling Korean Arts Project which aims to support the international touring of Korean arts.
