ACC Gallery presents Hangul Challenge 2023 Gala Art show

(TENAFLY, NJ) -- ACC Gallery in Tenafly presents Hangul Challenge 2023 Gala Art show from December 14 through January 6, 2024. Hangul, the remarkable Korean writing system created by King Sejong the Great, is a central focus of the CIA CIA Hangul USA Foundation. At the forefront of their efforts is the Hangul Challenge, a meticulously designed flagship project spotlighting the unique attributes of Hangul. This groundbreaking program empowers individuals with no prior knowledge of the script to read and write proficiently in just eight hours of training.

This inclusive event warmly welcomes participants from diverse backgrounds, with the goal of acquainting people worldwide with the scientific and phonetically accessible nature of Hangul. By the program's conclusion, participants will master the ability to read BTS's music written in Korean. The Hangul Challenge is proudly presented by the CIA CIA Hangul USA.

“Hangul Challenge 2023 Exhibition” serves as a dynamic platform to disseminate information about our non-profit activities. Through this initiative, we aspire to elevate awareness of the linguistic and cultural significance of Hangul, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation among diverse audiences.

Our eyes naturally have blind spots, which means there are areas of the world that we don't see. Hangul, a language known for its ease of writing, speaking, and reading in everyday life, reveals hidden aspects with a slight shift in perspective. This is what Hangul and art have in common. Like the process and product of an artist's philosophical experience, Hangul can express a wide range of sounds through its characters. The eight basic characters are combined with dots, lines and circles to create 28 characters that can represent every sound, light, color, and thought.

The connection between art and Hangul lies in their shared ability to communicate, and the aesthetic and sculptural value of Hangul is as limitless as art's ability to encompass both two- and three-dimensional forms. Like the creative value of art, the philosophy and principles of Hangul's creation are deeply rooted in its socio-cultural context and have undergone a rational and deliberate creative process. They hope that this exhibition will serve as a valuable platform to promote the excellence of Hangul through the lens of art.
