ABU DHABI -  A Korean embroidery exhibition has been launched online as part of the Korea-UAE Cultural Dialogue.

The Korean Cultural Centre in the UAE and the Sookmyung Women’s University Museum in Korea have organised the online event titled ‘The Past and Present of Korean Embroidery,’ which will run until June 24.

The Republic of Korea and the UAE set up their year-long  Korea-UAE Cultural Dialogue in 2020 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their diplomatic relations. However, both countries agreed to extend the event until 2021 due to COVID-19 related restrictions on cultural events.

Based on the partnership between Sookmyung Women’s University Museum and Google Arts & Culture, the online exhibition features Korea’s historic embroidery work.

The exhibition is available in Korean, English, and Arabic. It can be found at www.K-Museum.com
