Art is something that shines universally, transcending nationality, race, and time and space. It is my sincere hope that this
international art exchange exhibition by students from both countries who have a mindset and a soul that pursues beauty will become a cornerstone of artistic and cultural exchanges between the two countries, and that it will serve as an opportunity to bring about further enhancement and development of cultural exchanges. Since 1972, Hongik University has been involved in a variety of exchanges, not just exhibitions. Our exchange with Hongik University, a prestigious university in Korea, is our dust. I pray for the further development of Hongik University in the future, and I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Mr. Lee Moon-young, Chairman of Hongik Gakuen, as well as all concerned parties in both Japan and South Korea for their efforts in holding this international art exchange exhibition. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of you.

At the 32nd exchange exhibition held in South Korea this time, works in a variety of media and modes of expression were exhibited in the fields of pure art, crafts, and design, where creativity was condensed based on the culture of each country. It is my hope that students from both countries will appreciate each other’s works, be inspired by them, be positively influenced, and grow as new protagonists of contemporary art. We hope that this exhibition will deepen the friendship between the two schools, as well as serve as a venue for cultural cooperation that will invigorate artistic exchanges between Japan and South Korea. As a companion to the development of culture and art, mutual understanding and trust will be further strengthened through this exhibition.

Seo Jong Wook
Hongik University and Osaka University of Arts have been working on cultural and artistic exchanges for 50 years since their sisterhood affiliation in 1972. Among them, the Japan-Korea exchange exhibition, which has been jointly organized by both universities, is a symbol of the friendship between the two universities and plays a role as a representative channel for cultural and artistic exchanges.
This exchange exhibition will provide a new learning opportunity for students of art colleges in Japan and South Korea, who have different historical and cultural experiences, to get a first-hand glimpse of each other’s artistic worlds. Through this exchange exhibition, you can see how the students of both schools sublimated the concepts they learned at university into individual creativity and how they struggled to express them in their works.
We hope that this exhibition, which allows you to get out of the online exhibition space amidst the corona crisis and come into contact with art objects directly in front of the works, will lead to the provision of opportunities for moving and aesthetic experiences once again.
