Kukje Gallery | Busan
Kukje Gallery has launched its first-ever outpost in August of 2018 in Busan. Founded in 1982 and based in Seoul, Kukje Gallery has opened its Busan branch in F1963, a cultural complex located in Mangmi-dong, Suyeong-gu, Busan, in order to showcase works by a roster of internationally acclaimed contemporary artists as well as provide vital context with which to read their works to the regional audiences in the city. F1963, a cultural complex which used to be a wire factory, is Busan’s main attraction with more than 1,000,000 visitors per year and houses Sukcheon Hall (performance/exhibition space), a café, bookstore, restaurant, and various other cultural spaces. By introducing a diverse body of works to audiences in the Yeongnam region, ranging from paintings to sculptures, photography, and video in a space at a scale of approximately 330m2, Kukje Gallery Busan will present a unique opportunity for the audiences to become better acquainted with contemporary art. Kukje Gallery Busan looks forward to interweaving the arts into the everyday life and provide opportunities to not only local art enthusiasts but to the regional audiences in Busan.
