FLUID FORM I: Contemporary Art & Urban Design from The Middle East
“FLUID FORM I” is a unique (and free!) opportunity to experience the culture of the Middle East. The exhibition showcases not only the changing Middle Eastern urban environment but also unique contemporary Middle Eastern artworks.
Organized by the the Korea-Arab Society and held downtown at the beautiful Korea Foundation Cultural Center, “FLUID FORM I” project explores a contemporary art exhibition representing Arab countries’ architecture and urban environment and expressing the human state of mind breathing between the architectural spaces and thereby suggests the directions and some creative alternatives for Korea-Arab countries cultural exchanges focusing on architectural value and changing lives.
