Purpose & Background:

  The essence of “Space-in & Space-Out (SISO) exhibition” is to create a platform of exchange between international Korean Adoptees and Korean native artists. Art has always been a non-verbal method of communication that inhabits a particular language of its own, and this is exactly what this exhibition will accomplish.

Numerously talented Korean Adoptees have thrived in fields of art for years. It has come to a point where many Korean artists have begun to notice these unique gifts from afar. Supporters of this exhibition are eager to engage not only established but also to encourage young aspiring artists to share their works with the Korean art community. This will be an empowering experience for 15 cultures to merge under the experience of discovering new forms and ideas of art. As most forms of art are continuations of developing ideas, this exhibition will contribute to the betterment of modern art in Korea as well as an opportunity for your work to debut in the Korean market.
