Agenda: to do things in Seoul in the coming weeks

KIAF 2007 will be taking place at the COEX's Pacific Hall and Indian Hall on May 9---13. A springtime art bonanza, KIAF 2007 is expected to be Northeast Asia's biggest art fair, bringing works of contemporary artists from around the world under one roof. The key to the fair is diversity, and at last count, there is plenty coming to the COEX in May. The fair's tremendous scope --- 208 galleries from 18 countries --- includes representation by world-famous artists Paik Nam June, Damien Hirst and Gerhard Richter, but also reaches outside the box to showcase the talents of young upstarts. Paintings, drawings, photography, along with sculpture, video installations, and three-dimensional expressions of creativity, will be on view. These media and previously unimagined combinations therein, will be represented at KIAF 2007. For information on all the excitement KIAF 2007 has to offer, call (02) 6000-2501~3 or email


The Uijeongbu Music Theater Festival will be taking place at Uijeongbu Arts Center on May 11---27.
