'The Seoul Museum of Art is holding an exhibition titled, 2013 Emerging Artists: Round-Up, Exhibition of Artworks by Artists on the SEMA Assistance Program, between December 13, 2013 and January 12, 2014. 
"Emerging Artists: Exhibition Assistance Program for New Artworks" is the new name of the Seoul Museum of Art’s flagship annual project, which has been providing financial assistance and critics to potential young artists under the name of "SeMA Young Artists" since 2008. This year, the newly renamed assistance program has been expanded to include various genres of art, in order to reflect the new trends of contemporary art in accordance with the museum’s intention of supporting talented artists working in various experimental genres. Furthermore, whereas the assistance previously focused on solo exhibitions, this year’s exhibition consists of a joint exhibition of works by 28 artists. 
The title of this exhibition,“Round-Up,”is a news and media term referring to "a summary of recent facts and events". The exhibition is designed to showcase the representative artworks of twenty-eight artists who have held solo exhibitions around Seoul during 2013 with the museum’s assistance. It attempts to express the passion and pure desire of these young artists by configuring various artworks by the selected artists, which cannot be defined under one theme, in an intentionally-exaggerated or conflicting fashion within the exhibition hall.' - from museum's website.

With essays on each artist by art critics along with colour plates of artworks. Artists' biographies are included. This publication comes with the exhibition guidebook, which contains the gallery map.
