New gallery of Korean Art at the V&A

A space for over 600 decorative arts objects

The Victoria and Albert Museum has announced that the Samsung Gallery of Korean Art will open in December 1992. The opening of the Gallery has been made possible by £430,000 sponsorship from Samsung, the Korean consumer electronics company. It will provide a permanent home for the V&A’s collection of more than 600 artefacts which is especially strong in ceramics, metalwork and lacquer.
