    Hundreds of people flocked to the Serpentine Gallery in London on Tuesday to watch a world-wide art project created in collaboration with Korean super boy band Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS.

    The exhibition, called "Connect, BTS," brings together artists and curators from all over the world to present the notion of diversity and moves from London to Berlin, Buenos Aires, Seoul and New York until March featuring works by "Angel of the North" sculptor Antony Gormley among other middlebrow star artists.

    Bantan Boys (on TV screen) talk to artists and curators at the Serpentine Gallery in London via video link on Tuesday.

    BTS attended the event by video conference. Member Jung-kook said, "I heard from the artists that the experience of the audience makes an exhibition complete. I found a common feature in that our fans also make our concerts complete."

    The project is part of their attempt "to return the great amount of love and support from our fans," BTS said.

    In Seoul, the exhibition opens at Dongdaemun Design Plaza on Jan. 28.
