As part of the France-Korea Year organised under the aegis of the France-Korea Committee, chaired by Henri Loyrette, and in partnership with the Korea Craft & Design Foundation, from 19 September 2015 to 3 January 2016 the musee des Arts decoratifs will be showing the Korea now! Craft, Design, Fashion and Graphic Design in Korea exhibition. This major event will bring together more than 700 works of art by 150 artists, artisans, designers, fashion designers and graphic designers in almost all of the museum’s temporary exhibition spaces. The french public will discover the eclectic mix of styles, tastes and creations and the contemporary brilliance of this astounding artistic heritage still little known in europe. The intriguing and fascinating megalopolis that seoul is today is a cultural melting pot and above all a centre of creative effervescence whose trends are followed closely on the international design and fashion scenes.
Korean design and crafts will be given pride of place in the Arts Décoratifs nave and its side galleries. More than four hundred works by a hundred artists will show the diversity of this country’s artistic crafts, ranging from artisans using ancient techniques to the technological innovations of the young generation.
