Description

Ever wondered what North Korean Art looks like?

La Galleria is pleased to present ART ABOVE ADVERSITY, an exhibition highlighting the undiscovered talent and culture of Chosun (Democratic People‘s Republic of Korea, aka North Korea), showcasing a rarely seen collection of paintings accumulated by the Song family, avid promoters of peace in the Korean Peninsula. Their collection consists of more than 100 artworks, focusing on Chosunhwa and by highly reputed artists from DPRK.

The exhibition, organised and curated by Teresa Song and her father, Paul Song, seeks to foster a new engagement with the culture of the DPRK, bringing to light the wealth of talent and diversity in the country‘s scene through a non-political lens. The show comprises of over 50 paintings from a handpicked selection of artists from their collection, all of whom have earned accolades both in their native country and on an international platform.

With this exhibition, the Song family hopes to attract a new audience for and interest in the artistic and cultural landscape of the DPRK. Through continued investment in regional artworks and in the plan- ning of future events, they aim to achieve their long-term goal of brid- ging the gap between Europe and the DPRK.
