Korean Cultural Centre
Established in 2008, the role of the Korean Cultural Centre (KCC) is to enhance friendship, amity and understanding between Korea and the UK through cultural and educational activities. In partnership with The Korea Craft and Design Foundation (KCDF), the KCC will present Make Your Movement: Korean Contemporary Objects, A New Approach between 1 August and 17 September – an exhibition curated to showcase a new phase in Korean craft, influenced by the concept of ‘movement’. The exhibition brings together 20 designers, makers and craftsmen from Korea whose collections range from 3D printed accessories and furniture to jewellery and ceramics. Curated by Kyoungrin Park, the show explores the theory of movement in craft. KCDF is a public organisation with the backing of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism founded to promote traditional Korean craft and design and to promote Korea’s distinctive heritage and culture around the globe.
