Delight Seoul 2021: Seeing Seoul From A Unique Lense

If there’s one thing history will always remember about Seoul, it’s the city’s obsession with art-tainment. A person who’s visited South Korea will know what I am talking about. And for those who haven’t had the chance yet, let us tell you that there isn’t a big public place in Seoul that won’t introduce you to a new perspective of the country’s rich cultural heritage. Almost all the new public places like parks, restaurants, and entertainment centers offer some kind of, little or big, artistic touch in them. Delight Seoul is another part of this tradition.

You can know all about these places on our blog in various articles. But today we’re going to reveal a very funky style of an art exhibition to you in this read. It’s about the city’s dedication to its traditional art. And it will not be wrong to say that it’s not only the zeal and zest of the citizens for art but also how they choose to demonstrate it. 

Because the way Seoul manifested its love for art and entertainment through Seoul Delight is quite unique and powerful than we normally see elsewhere in the world. I think it’s time we stop with this suspense and take you directly into the heart of the topic.

Let’s find out what Seoul Delight is all about.

What Is Delight Seoul Exhibition?

Okay so, this exhibition is taking place at the Insa Central Museum till June 2021. There are various sub-themes of this exhibition but the main idea is to portray a retro image of Seoul in a unique way.

The artists will display the images of the city which are going to be quite unusual and unseen even for the residents. Delight Seoul is basically a project of Design Silver Fish. And the fundamental goal is to showcase a never seen before the image of Seoul with the help of immersive art technology. This tool and resource are internationally recognized. 

The agency has invited artists from various media fields providing them an opportunity to demonstrate their work in front of the public. 

The major idea is to represent the dynamic transformation of the city from the past till now. Seoul is like the hub of Korean culture so its history has always been of significant value. Plus the way this city has transformed is quite magical as it is an eye-candy for the entire world for its artistic value. And this is what the Delight Seoul 2021 is all about. 

Visitors are likely to explore the city from 11 different themes for the first time. The amazing thing is, it’s the same city they’ve been born and raised in but still, these pictures will expand their horizons and experiences because of how different exposure they’ll provide. 

But let’s now check out the other details about this exhibition.
