Established in the heart of Seoul in 1982, Kukje Gallery is a leading Korean gallery dedicated to showcasing works by Korean and international artists and promoting modern and contemporary art. At 54 Samcheong-ro, Jongno-gu, the gallery has 3 key exhibition spaces, respectively named K1, K2, and K3. In 2018, the gallery opened a second location in F1963, a cultural complex housed in a former wire factory in Suyeong-gu, Busan.
Also in the gallery’s roster of contemporary Korean artists are Kyungah Ham, who collaborates with North Korean artisans to produce her embroidery works; Suki Seokyeong Kang, known for her systematic installations that provide contemporary interpretations of traditional Korean vocabularies; Kimsooja, whose ‘Needle Woman’ performances and videos pose the artist’s body as a metaphorical needle, sewing through the metropolitan cities of the world; Yeondoo Jung, whose cinematic photographs, installations, and videos oscillate between fiction and reality; and Haegue Yang, known for her multimedia, sensory installations.
