Busan-centered art group Exotic Beasts will hold a weeklong exhibition in Busan from next weekend.

The group’s third exhibition, enigmatically titled “?,” asks what would be left to strive for if everything were known.

“We’ve got 15 different artists with very different styles,” said exhibition organizer and artist Niall Ruddy.

“Included is everything from pottery by a Korean artist named Hwaram, we have some delicate flower paintings by Willow, some humorous and trashy illustrations from Michael Melson and I have personally contributed a couple of portraits disguised as social commentary or vice versa.”

In addition to the artwork there will be an opening event with performances from musicians including Gino Bravo, Grant Maxim and Mike Ventola. Postcards and posters will be available at the event.

The exhibition will be held at Nada at the north end of Gwangan Beach in Busan from Dec. 3 to 10, with the opening event running from 2 to 7 p.m. on Dec. 3.
