Centre Culturel Français is pleased to introduce an innovative annual public art project titled “le tunnel: contemporary public art project” which will be presented from March 2008. The site specific exhibition is to be held year round showing one young Korean or French artist every 3-4 months. The artist is to create a site specific work to be placed within Centre Culturel Français.

“le tunnel” is named from its architectural character within the French Cultural Center and also for its symbolic value to connect Korea and France. The Centre Culturel Français in Seoul has played a major role in presenting many cultural activities from France and also of Korean artists in France.

The selection of the artists have been made by the committee members within the Centre Culturel Français and Laurence Geoffrey’s, Ltd, a professional foreign art consultancy based in Seoul as a special adviser for the 2008 selection. The basic requirements for the artists selected by the committee are to be emerging Korean or French artists who are living either in Korea or France, with a professional background.
