The innovative space for this exhibition was designed and created in collaboration with contemporary artist Kim Seung-young.

Previously, the exhibition was successfully held at Chuncheon National Museum in Aug. 2018 and the National Museum of Korea in Apr. 2019, and was well received by a large number of visitors.
