In this exhibition illuminating the evolution of art and its environments in the wake of urbanisation, artworks in various genres from Korea and abroad will be presented to describe the development of “urban culture” from the eighteenth century on. The themes will range from the urban landscape to sentiment and aesthetics of the late Joseon to modern periods.
