Located in one of Seoul’s most artistic and liberal neighborhoods, newly opened D Museum is definitely a spot any contemporary art lover should check out. I recently visited the space to check out 9 Lights in 9 Rooms/Spatial Illumination, an exhibit that was pleasantly overwhelming to my senses. Each of the projects were so vastly different yet each of them bound together by the fact that the creators each have keen interest in demonstrating how light can transform environments and objects as well as alter human perception.

The modern design of the building makes an excellent home to this temporary exhibition and was easy to navigate. Since we went on one of the coldest days of the year, we opted for a cab ride straight to D Museum, though it is easily accessible by bus as well as a short walk from Itaewon.

This exhibition runs through May 8, 2016. For more information, visit the D Museum website.

    Oh, I love the Daelim Museum so much. That’s definitely a place I’m going to miss visiting.
