The first is the "2007 Gwangwhamoon International Art Festival (GIAF)" in the vibrant capital city of Seoul, the epicenter of art and culture. GIAF will take place in Seojong Center between April 25 to April 29, 2007 (opening on April 25th). This is considered to be the best art festival in Seoul.
The second event, "ASTO International Art Festival (AIAF)" will be hosted by the National Assembly Library of Korea, in Seoul between May 2 to May 24 (opening on May 2nd).
NanoArt Works in Two Events in South Korea
South Korea | Posted on April 25th, 2007
These two art festivals will include over 50 international artists as well as approximate 100 artists from Korea. The events are sponsored by Korean Artists Association, Seoul Foundation of Arts and Culture, Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Korea Tourism Organization, Arts Council Korea, KBS, Ambassade de France en Coree, British Embassy, Japanese Embassy, Chinese Embassy, Spanish Embassy, and other organizations.
NANOART is a new art discipline related to micro/nanosculptures created by artists/scientists through chemical/physical processes and/or natural micro/nanostructures that are visualized with powerful research tools like Scanning Electron Microscope and Atomic Force Microscope. NanoArt could be for the 21st Century what Photography was for the 20th Century. We live in a technological society, in a new Renaissance period, and there is no reason for Arts to stay away from Technology. NanoArt is the expression of the New Technological Revolution and reflects the transition from Science to Art using Technology. Scientists are exploring the nanoworld hoping to find a better future. Nanotechnology might be the answer although it might have positive or negative effects on the environment and society. Artists should familiarize the general public with the nanouniverse, so people will focus on the positive effects and redirect the negative ones to benefit from them.
