Seoul Art Center employed a new way of planning - entitled responsible planning system - in which the five critics accepted the new way of adopting both the theory and works together, not following the old ceremonial and transcendent attitude. The new critics who will lead the future fine art shared their critiques and artists displayed their works. The five new young critics who have played great roles in modern art since the 1980s, and will continue to attract the attention from the world of fine art, took part in the exhibition.
