On this occasion Smt. Kapila Vatsyayan congratulated the artists and organizers for coming up with such show. She said, it’s great to see the art works of artists from both the countries and will provide an opportunity to art lovers and others who don’t know about the culture, tradition, art and its diversity. It is heartening to note a steady rise in exchange of art and culture taking place between Korea and India in recent times. We had organized a series of important cultural events last year and this momentum will be maintained this year too, says H.E. Joongyu Lee. The Art exhibition having the theme ‘Beyond the Borders’ is the beginning of a series of many such events planned to take place this year. The theme of the art exhibition is self explanatory. It seeks to build a bridge of friendship between peoples of Korea and India, transcending their respective national boundaries. I am sure the exhibition will further strengthen cultural ties between peoples of the two countries, he added.
Kim Kum-pyoung, Director Korean Cultural Centre said Art has no boundaries and there is no delineation of race and religion in its expression. ‘Beyond The Borders’ being the title of this exhibition tries to look towards the essentials of art and strives to ensure some form of communication between the artists of both countries. He thanked Kalicharan Gupta for his efforts and help in organizing & leading the cultural exchange.
