CJ Picture Book Exhibition - KFCC gallery, Seoul, Nov 23 - Dec 24

The CJ Culture Foundation will be holding the 2nd CJ Picture Book Festival at the Korea Foundation Cultural Center from November 23 through December 24. The exhibition will present 100 works for the New Publication Category and 50 for the Illustration Category, selected from hundreds of works submitted by publishers and artists from around the world.

Kveta Pacovska, popular with children worldwide for her illustrated books, will be invited to the exhibition to introduce her unique three-dimensional picture books that engage all five senses. Special events to be held in conjunction with the exhibition include a picture book forum, picture book animation screenings and a picture book library.

Picture books have already established themselves as a cultural resource for people of all ages and both sexes. Rather than remain mere as paper books as in the past, they have been recreated as valuable cultural content, breaking the barriers between genres and combining with diverse media to create new aesthetic forms.
