‘Sewol Ferry Themed’ Exhibition to be Held at Daein Market’s Mite-Ugro


A ‘Sewol Ferry-themed’ exhibition to commemorate and memorialize the tragic loss of lives in the April 16th ferry disaster will be held at the art space, ‘Mite-Ugro’, located in Daein Market in Gwangju until September 20th.

Featuring the participation of five Korean artists, the special Sewol ferry exhibition displays artistic works that depict the sorrows of the families of the victims and expresses how Korea as a nation should not forget about the tragedy.

Participating artists focus on the emotional connection between what happened in the waters off Jindo when the ferry sank with more than 400 passengers on-board and the Korean people who shared tears and sorrow during the search and rescue operation.

The exhibition will be open daily, except Mondays, until September 20th at the Mite-Ugro art space in Daein Market.
