It has presented various exhibitions introducing the present and future of contemporary art, and has grown into one of the nation’s largest and most representative culture and art events stimulating the national and local economies.
The annual international art fair will bring together 164 art galleries from home and abroad.
The event will feature local and international art galleries with the highest profiles in the fair’s eight-year history.
Highbrow art galleries such as Kukje Gallery, Gallery Hyundai, PKM Gallery, and Gana Art will be among the 106 local art dealers showcasing works at the three-day fair.
