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.
