Second, [stil laif] by Choe U-Ram.
Period for the exhibition is until February 12th 2017.
“Anima-Machine” by Choe U-Ram is marvelous that elaborate designed works are moving. It looks like living aliens. Each piece has a title and explanation with storytelling. I think it is just like a story.
Unfortunately these photos were not able to express their movements. But there is a saying: A thousand hearings are not worth one seeing. I really recommend seeing
Third, Y+ Artist project 1,[ Bae Jongheon: Naissance]. You can see this exhibition until February 12th 2017.

Finally, the Awardee of the 16th Lee In Sung Art Prize: [Shadows, Clouds, and…-Melancoila of Lee Taeho’s Paintings].
It is held by February 12th 2017. The exhibition by Lee Tae Ho who is an awardee of the 16th Lee In Sung Art Prize. Who is Lee In Sung? Lee In Sung who was born in Daegu was a genius painter.
The exhibition consists of Lee Taeho’s 50-year Universe of artworks including his early works of the 80s and recent ones (2016). I think it will be a good time to think about deep reflections on the life and human beings.
After seeing whole exhibition and you still need more, it is good to look around each exhibition again.
