Urban Legends In celebrating its 130th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Korea and France, Seoul Museum of Art presents Urban Legends, putting forth the outcomes of the exchange program with Palais de Tokyo. Seven international artists selected by the two institutions, crossing over boundaries of gender, nationality and culture, will unfold creative initiatives filled with imaginations based on the urban experience from Seoul and Paris. Their insights from productively misreading the deviating interpretations and misunderstanding caused by limited conditions and environments such as the physical distance between the two cities, psychological and cultural differences, and language barrier create intriguing legends of their own.
