The Korean Cultural Centre UK presents Royal Palaces of Joseon – an exhibition that introduces the shrines and royal palaces of Korea’s Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910).

About

Through photographs, videos and traditional paper crafts, Royal Palaces of Joseon presents four royal palaces, Gyeongbokgung palace, Changdeokgung palace, Changgyeonggung palace, and Deoksugung palace, along with the Jongmyo Shrine which houses the ancestral tablets of the kings of the Joseon Dynasty. These five cultural assets are not just important heritage sites in Korea but also globally recognised, with Changdeokgung palace and the Ritual Ceremonies of the Jongmyo Shrine also being on UNESCO’s World Heritage lists.

The exhibition will feature artwork by cultural heritage photographer Seo Heun-kang and photographer and videographer Park Jong-woo. Also, recreating a painting of the Royal family's wedding in 1759, Yang Mi-young creates a large-scale artwork made from Korea’s traditional paper, hanji.
