This exhibition celebrates the Korean community in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and UK-Korean cross cultural appreciation through historical and contemporary artworks.


The exhibition showcases over 30 historical colourful woodblock and etching prints by European and American artists, depicting the life, landscapes and events of Korea from the 1920s to 1950s.


Alongside these historical prints, four British artists, including Emma Corrall, who is a former recipient of the BKS grant, present their interpretation of contemporary Korea and New Malden which is home to the largest Korean community in Europe.
