This exhibition portrays BTS leader Kim Nam-joon in different scenarios, showcasing his interests and talents. Divided into three sections-- nature, art, and stage-- visitors will be able to see the portraits of Kim and also engage in artistic activities and art book reading as an act "Namjooning"-- a term coined to refer to visiting museums or nature. As this exhibit is meant to celebrate Kim's birthday, there will also be commemorative photo zones and limited souvenirs for self-identifying BTS ARMY. [read full description here...]
아티스트 김남준(RM)의 다양한 관심사와 모습을 볼 수 있는 이번 전시는 자연, 미술, 무대의 테마로 나눠져 있다. "남준, 하다"는 미술관이나 자연속으로 여행하는 것을 의미하듯, 방문자는 걸려 있는 초상화의 감상 뿐만 아니라 직접 예술 프로젝트와 아트북 독서 활동에 참여할 수 있다. 생일 기념 전시인만큼 BTS 아미를 위한 기념포토존과 한정수량 기념품이 준비되어 있다. [전체글 읽기...]
RM in the Metaverse: Virtual Museum
9/10/2021 - 12/31/2022
To celebrate the birthday of BTS leader Kim Nam-joon (RM), portraits of RM from artists around the world were curated in a 3D virtual gallery. Artists were hand-selected based on their style and country to represent diversity and they gave permission for their art to be featured.
In addition to the portrait galleries, you can also videochat with other Army in our social rooms, watch RM music videos in the theater, and take selfies with an art wall.
This is a non-profit endeavour so please be respectful of the art and do not redistribute without proper attribution. The experience works best with Chrome or Firefox browsers on a desktop or laptop computer (images may not show up properly on a phone or tablet). The site will ask you to grant permission to use a camera and mic- this is because there are rooms that allow you to video chat with other fans- but you do not have to use this feature. We do not collect any user data.
