Korean art and culture sees a reinforcement in terms of influence over the Filipino taste, if the upcoming Korean Contemporary Artists Association Exhibition (KCAA) 2019 is any indication. The new multimedia exhibition follows the theme "Korean Contemporary Art Today"—intended to "form a deep mutual understanding and examine the current state of oriental art by means of fine arts such as paintings, sculptures, and installations." Staged at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila from November 28, 2019 to February 28, 2020, it joins the art and cultural festivities to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Philippine and Korean bilateral relations and the ASEAN-Republic of Korea Commemorative Summit.
For the event, KCAA is flying KCAA President Shin Cheol-kyun and 17 out of the 35 participating Korean artists to the country. The mentioned delegates are taking part at the opening reception, organized by Ambassador HAN Dong-man of the Republic of Korea.
Next to showcasing artistry, KCAA aims to further inspire local artists to "constantly pursue challenging and experimental art" as both countries strive to maintain their good relationship and healthy cultural exchanges.
Organized by the Embassy of the Republic of Korea and the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines together with Korean Contemporary Artists Association and Metropolitan Museum of Manila, “Korean Contemporary Artists’ Association Exhibition 2019” will be running from November 28, 2019 to February 28, 2020 at the Galeriya Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, Metropolitan Museum of Manila.
