General information

Brief description of organisation

As part of the Seoul metropolitan government´s project to establish creative spaces, Seoul Art Space GEUMCHEON was formed by remodeling a printing plant at Doksan-dong, Geumcheon-gu, Seoul.

The creative space is based on the new concept of executing joint projects, within international artist-in-residencies, experimenting with global aesthetics and locality.

This creative space formation project, spearheaded by Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture, is a key part of Seoul´s cultural strategy, to bring life to idle facilities located in the downtown area, such as factories, underground shops, and empty governmental offices, by remodeling them as spaces for artists´ creation and exchange, and spaces for citizens´ enjoyment of culture and arts.
