Exhibition in Korea: Hello! from Australia
We are looking forward to installing the ‘Hello from Australia’ exhibition at the Korea Cultural Foundation Gallery in Seoul on February 11. Leaving tomorrow, it's going to be an exciting trip.
This is the promotional print exhibition shown at the 2102 Bologna Book Fair. These promotional exhibitions are an initiative of Books Illustrated and the Australian Publishers Association to promote a range of contemporary picture books through an exhibition of specially selected images from these books, presented as giclee digital prints. When invited to take this exhibition to Korea, we added a section onThe Lost Thing by Shaun Tan - from book to film, the DVD being screened as part of this extended exhibition.
During our visit we will take part in workshops, talks and we'll visit Nami Island – also known in Korea as the Republic of the Imagination - more on this later!
This is the third venue for this exhibition in Korea, and with requests from some regional libraries, it looks like the tour will continue into 2013!
