100 Years of the Nobel Peace Prize
The exhibition 100 Years of the Nobel Peace Prize celebrates the winning of the Nobel Peace Prize for the year 2000 by Korea’s President Kim Dae Jong. On view from December 2000 to January 2001, in Seoul, it was an assignment for which the international network of Lord Cultural Resources was ideally suited. Our team provided planning, design and guidance to the Korean project managers of the exhibition. Working with our Korean Associate Jung-Wha Kim, Lord Cultural Resources sourced exhibition components from all over the world – from the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm and Oslo and from the small museum in Sweden that was Nobel’s last laboratory, as well as from Peace Museums in Bradford and Chicago, and from the International Children’s Peace Pavilion in Independence, Missouri.
Lord Cultural Resources also arranged for two Canadian artists to install their sculpture composed of melted-down guns in Seoul after it closed its exhibition period at Expo 2000 in Hannover. We designed the exhibition and worked closely with Korean fabricators who installed the show in record time – since we could not start until the announcement of the Peace Prize, just seven weeks before the 2,600 m2 exhibition opened.
