KOREA---With the positive New Year remarks by the leaders of North and South Korea setting up the possibility of a thaw in inter-Korean relations, South Koreans this year will be able to see more exhibitions with North Korean elements than ever before. The Seoul Museum of Art is preparing a North Korea-themed exhibit to mark the 70th year of the division of Korea. Art lovers can also look forward to seeing some cutting-edge works of media artist Bill Viola from March to April. His intensive works show technical mastery, and are embedded with his philosophical ideas and thoughts. [link]
