Most of us can only visit these museums on the weekends, and that means waiting in line to get a chance to view some art. This December, however, it might be worth the wait. Exhibitions include mega fashion photographer David LaChapelle, creator of the Art Nouveau movement Alphonse Mucha and even a master of Korean modern art Yoo Youngkuk are just some of the maestro. They will be on till February or March of next year, so make sure to squeeze some worthwhile art exhibitions into your busy schedules.

Taking a new approach using new media and technology, S-Factory in Seongsu-dong presents a modern media art exhibition of the celebrated Viennese artist Gustav Klimt. Unlike the traditional method—of viewing renowned paintings hung on museum walls—this exhibition allows us to experience the works of art complimented by music, lighting, LED screens and more. Divided into 6 sections (End of Century, Ver Sacrum, Women, Stocklet Frieze, Later Colors and Kiss), each section offers unique insight into the Austrian symbolist painter. Outside the main exhibition, visitors can experience a virtual reality of a Stoclet Palace dining room decorated with an artwork which Klimt was commissioned to create.
