About Exhibition

About Exhibition
Light watches the shadows
Behind Illumination
This exhibition can be called a prelude of the exhibition, showing the full implications. Through a chronological history of type and illustration on a civilization, we can see the hidden values and history of JIKJI.
Light meets the darkness
Gutenberg Galaxy's stained glass is connected to the young architect through character tunnel in the exhibition space.
Light illuminates again
We can predict future parts with a combination of imagination and technology that are JIKJI in the past and contemporary works containing an intuitive interpretation and being utilized in a wide range as currently, many works on display interpret JIKJI's value. In particular, we can admire arts advised by the CERN Arts Bureau and FACT Liverpool studying sky, grounds and a person (天地人).
