    The Seoul Museum of Art is holding an exhibition titled 2013 Seoul Focus (Beyond Korean Painting) at the Buk Seoul Museum of Art from December 20, 2013 to February 9, 2014.

    The Seoul Focus exhibition (previously titled the Seoul Art Exhibition) is celebrating its 28th anniversary this year. The preceding 27th exhibition was a turning point that saw a breakaway from the conventional exhibition format and suggested a new direction for the Seoul Art Exhibition, with a focus on special exhibitions to be held under various themes and issues through specific media. As the new name of the Seoul Art Exhibition (held annually throughout the long history of the Seoul Museum of Art), Seoul Focus alludes to the staging of special exhibitions with more clearly defined themes.
