Since opening in 2013, g.gallery in Seoul, Korea, has been showcasing art and design works by talented young artists both domestic and abroad. With a recognition that the boundaries between art, culture and the public has collapsed, and that the public no longer regards art as a relic of a particular collector or class or a mere means of investment, g.gallery was founded to meet the changing trends and attitudes in today’s fast-changing art scene by presenting art as an approachable cultural necessity.
g.gallery aims to generate diversification of the Korean art market by not only introducing the works of a younger generation of artists from abroad, such as Robert Moreland, Michael Scoggins and Starsky Brines, internationally esteemed artists whose works previously have not been easily accessible in Korea, but also by highlighting artists’ developments and values integral in understanding and appreciating art. Likewise, g.gallery has since established itself as a cultural art space that fosters the potential of young artists, as well as a significant force that enhances the quality of contemporary art in Korea. Conducting promotional art and design projects, partaking in exhibitions abroad and in art fairs, directing collaborations between emerging artists and established artists, g. gallery continues to offer a fresh set of eyes and tastes that fulfills the changing expectations of a larger audience.
