2018 marks the 1,000th anniversary of the foundation of the Honam region being named Jeolla-do: that offers an opportunity to newly recognize the future vision of this site as well as its identity.
Universities, research organizations, museums, and other institutions in north and south Jeolla provinces have been promoting diverse projects and exhibitions in this respect. The Gwangju Museum of Art focuses primarily on approaching Jeolla-do’s spirit, culture, and its historical symbolism rather than considering them academically. The resulting collective exhibition has been constructed with four themes in order for viewers to get a sense of Jeolla-do’s spirit by interpreting its character and artistic context.
