Kimsooja laureate Ho-Am Prize in the Arts 2015
​The Ho-Am Prize was established in 1990 by Kun-Hee Lee, the Chairman of Samsung, with a vision to create a new corporate culture that continues the noble spirit of public service espoused by the late Chairman Byung-chull Lee, founder of Samsung. The Prize, named after the late Chairman's sobriquet, is presented each year to individuals who have contributed to academics, the arts, and social development, or who have furthered the welfare of humanity through distinguished accomplishments in their respective professional fields.

The Prize for The Arts encompasses broad areas of arts activities including literature, music, painting, design, dance and theater. The Prize is awarded to people of Korean heritage who have contributed to the enrichment of culture and arts for humankind.

The Ho-Am Prize presentation ceremony is held each year on June 1st at the Ho-Am Art Hall in downtown Seoul, with prominent personages from diversified backgrounds in attendance.
Following the ceremony, there is a formal congratulatory banquet in celebration of the year’s award.
