Mr Crothers says importing Moon Jar and other Korean relics to Australia went through such an arduous process due to strict regulations in Korea. However, NGV’s appeal that there isn’t a great understanding of Korean aesthetic and art forms in Australia due to a lack of Korean artworks was accepted by Korean government agency Culture Heritage Administration.

Mr Crothers also mentions it is galleries and curators’ role to present artworks to the Australian public and build stronger understandings between Korea and Australia through the power of art and design and culture.

The full interview with Korean voice over is available on the podcast above.
