Mexican soccer fans have been eager to show their appreciation to Korea after their third game at the FIFA World Cup 2018. If it hadn’t been for Korea’s victory against Germany, Mexico’s National Team wouldn’t have made the cut for the next phase.

In Mexico City, the National Museum of Cultures will host the Tres Espejos de Corea” (Three Mirrors from Korea) exhibition, featuring paintings from Seahyun Lee, Jaerok Jang, and Minseok Chi. Mexican soccer fans will be able to thank Koreans for their unintentional gesture by learning more about Korean culture.

The exhibition will be open for the general public staring July 5.

In addition to the temporary exhibition, the museum holds a permanent exhibition called: “Korea: The Land of the Morning Ease” which seeks to outline the history of the Korean culture and art while underlining the beliefs and traditions of this ancient culture.

Given the recent feat of Korea’s National Team, the Museum of Cultures in downtown Mexico City reminded audiences of the permanent exhibition through a tweet: “At the Museum of Cultures we have a permanent exhibition called 'Korea: The Land of the Morning Ease,' with original pieces which were kindly donated by our friends from Korea. You may visit them Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 am to 05:00 pm. Admissions are free."

The recently renovated gallery is divided into four sections: Life Cycle Ceremonies, Religious Beliefs, Customs and Traditions, and Contributions: Technology, Science, and Artistic Expression. The exhibition’s curatorship was run by Silvia Seligson, an investigator from the INAH museum. 110 pieces dating from the Neolithic period up until the 20th century are displayed in its interior.

Some of the pieces are funerary offerings, musical instruments, paintings, clothes, and green porcelain artifacts, all of which are trademarks of Korean art, and constitute outstanding cultural objects.

Korea possesses a very singular culture, with a unique artistic style which is characterized by its spontaneity, elegance, and a serene relationship between the individual, its community, and nature.
