The exhibition <Crystallize> is part of Korea Brand and Entertainment Expo 2013, celebrating Korea’s technology and creative culture. This exhibition shows how British and Korean artists express science, IT, technology, social media and cinema through contemporary art. The core of exhibition planning is t a pioneering and collaborative spirit which can bring 16 UK and Korean artists together in a celebration of technology and creative culture. The curator Stephanie Kim felt that artists had great roles to play in any aspirational world by revealing the unseen. She wanted to be able to show those their insights through the exhibition. Despite the different backgrounds of the 16 artists, each artist has learned and harmonized with each other and exhibited an independent but innovative art. At the opening of the exhibition, many people from the art and cultural industry participated such as the Korea Trade Center, Dan Damon, a BBC Presenter, Professor Mike Stubbs, the director of the Fact and the Media Art and the Art Council England.
