Lascaux Exhibition Hall: Art of Jean Novel, a magician of light
  • The Lascaux Exhibition Hall was designed by Jean Novel, a master of modern architecture and winner of the 2008 Pritzker Prize who is known as the “magician of light”. His major works include the Arab World Institute in Paris, France; the Torre Agbar (Office Tower) in Barcelona, Spain; the Louvre Abu Dhabi in the UAE; and Museum Two, Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, Korea.

    Mr. Novel designed the Lascaux Exhibition Hall in the Gwangmyeong Cave Theme Park when an international tour of the Lascaux Cave Paintings was held to celebrate the Korea-France Year of Bilateral Exchanges in 2015-2016. The exhibition hall features a unique exterior made with containers. Its black, modern building creates the impression of a dark night, as if it were coming out of the ground. It is also equipped with Korea’s largest beam projector system, and frequently exhibits international artworks as well as holding media art exhibitions, promotions, and conferences.

  • It holds interesting exhibitions on new themes every year, allowing visitors to participate in and communicate with diverse media.
