About the exhibition

Intrigued by sets and costumes from Korean historical dramas and films? Then you will want to see actual furniture, fashion, and decorative arts from Korea's Joseon era (1392 - 1897). Spanning some 500 years, Joseon was Korea's last dynasty, and the legacy of its courtly culture and vibrant city life lives on in South Korea today. Treasures from the National Museum of Korea, the National Palace Museum of Korea, and the Daegu National Museum will be displayed for the first time in Singapore.

This exhibition will also be accompanied by a work by South Korean contemporary artist Ran Hwang, best known for using pins, buttons, and thread to create large-scale installations.
