Seoul to get new UUL museum for contemporary art end 2013




UUL is the new name of the Seoul branch of the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea (NMOCA) which is to be open at the end of 2013.
It is an acronym of the Korean word “우리[wuri]” which refers to “we” and Korean word meaning “fence.” It embodies the concept of the Museum as “our own museum, which is always with us.”


The construction of this new museum is now underway on a 27,402㎡ plot of land near the Gyeongbok Palace, a symbolic landmark of the Joseon Dynasty, and walking distance from Changdeok Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage. The area is also home to a spatter of various modern art galleries. For more information on the architecture of the museum, check out its website www.uul.go.kr
