BTS has revealed their CONNECT, BTS project, and it's even bigger than what could have been anticipated.

The global project connects five cities and 22 artists, who each will contribute their own philosophy and imagination. According to the official website, the project can be best defined as a collective curatorial practice by curators around the world who resonate with BTS' philosophy.

There are five free exhibitions taking place around the world, starting at London's Serpentine Gallery, before opening in Berlin's Gropius Bau, then Buenos Aires, Seoul and New York. Artists who will be involved include Jakob Kudsk Steensen, Tomas Saraceno, Ann Veronica Janssens and Sir Antony Gormley.

You can check out the website for official dates and locations for each exhibition. There's also an interview between BTS and the first artist to be unveiled, Jakob Kudsk Steensen, on the website.

BTS will release their new album MAP OF THE SOUL: 7 on February 21. Follow their release timeline here.
