The fifth Korea-Australia Arts Foundation(KAAF) Art Prize, organised by the KAAF and sponsored by the Korean Cultural Centre Australia(KCC) was awarded on the 24th of November featuring 74 artworks of the finalists from around 370 entries. The exhibition opening and awards ceremony were successfully held at the Korean Cultural Centre Australia.
The KAAF was first established in 2013 and has endeavoured to support multiculturalism in Australia. It seeks to do so by providing opportunities for various cultures to liaise in the form of visual arts. The Korean Cultural Centre has supported the Art Prize in providing the exhibition space, execution and curating of the exhibition. The collaboration that is achieved through Australia and Korea is most important and the Korean Cultural Centre hopes to continue its outpour of support for events along this nature.
