The impact of the digital revolution on the cultural and creative industries, as underscored in the 2005 Convention on the Protection and the Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, will be the focus of discussions at UNESCO Headquarters on 12 September 2016.

Joining the debate will be two leading artists from the Republic of Korea, Mr Han Ho and Mr Byeong Sam Jeon, who will also display their latest creations supporting the notion that the digital age represents remarkable opportunities for artists giving them and the public an important vehicle for creation and enjoyment of artistic work. The exhibition ‘Technology in Contemporary Art’ encompasses new techniques in producing the creative expressions on show.

The opening ceremony for the exhibition on 12 September, at 18:00, will feature the Director General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, Byong Hyun Lee, Ambassador and Permanent Delegate of the Republic of Korea to UNESCO, Francesco Bandarin, Assistant Director General for Culture, UNESCO, as well as the Korean artists. This exhibit is organized in the context of the “KOREA-UNESCO week” celebrations.
