Hangaram Art Museum of Seoul Arts Center, Seocho District

To Oct. 7: This may be a designer’s exhibition, but what you see is more than just a collection of clever furniture. There are officially some 350 pieces of work put on display, such as furniture, objets d’art, design sketches, paintings and sculptures that people can not only look at, but touch and feel for themselves.

So rather than just imagining what it would feel like to sit on one of Rashid’s famous curvy sofas, visitors get an opportunity to appreciate his work with their very own bodies.

On top of that, even the vivid colors and eye-catching patterns of the walls are chosen from Rashid’s design archive.

Tickets cost 14,000 won for adults and 8,000 won for children. Get off at Nambu Bus Terminal Station, line No. 3, exit 4-2 or 5.

MMCA Seoul, Jongno District

To Oct. 9: The Polish artist Krzysztof Wodiczko, 74, is famous for his public art projects. Although grand monuments and facades are meant to show off a city’s power and glory, Wodiczko has turned them into film screens on which the cities’ neglected people or social minorities appear and speak.

His first-ever retrospective in Korea includes the video records of ten of the artist’s public art projects. There is also his latest work “My Wish.” On a replica of a monument to Kim Koo, a leading Korean independence activist are projected the images of contemporary Koreans.

Tickets cost 4,000 won. The museum is closed on Monday. The museum is a 10-minute walk from Anguk Station, line No. 3, exit 1.
