No contributor

The 21st edition of the Galleries Association of Korea’s premier international art fair, Kiaf SEOUL returns to COEX from September 3—6 with an exclusive VIP opening on September 2. Fairgoers will find presentations from 164 galleries filling the venue’s Hall A and B, encompassing an international selection representing 17 countries, over 100 Korean art spaces, and a selection of 37 newcomers. The satellite fair, Kiaf PLUS, debuts this year from September 2—5 at the city’s SETEC.

“With over two decades of history and experiences, Kiaf is in a unique position to showcase contemporary Korean art in unparalleled depth and breadth,” said the Galleries Association of Korea’s President, Dal-Seung Hwang. “At the same time, we’re proud to have evolved into a global gathering place for the art world, with our exhibitor list this year more international than ever. We are seeing great interest from collectors and industry professionals both in Korea and internationally and look forward to welcoming our visitors in September.”
