Wooson Gallery sees its principal mission in introducing great artists of our epoch into the Korean art world and museological integration of their work in Korea. In doing so, the gallery promotes a new communication between art lovers and professionals such as critics and scholars. Simultaneously, the gallery helps audiences to establish an authentic modern visual culture, contributing them to create contemporary collections with a high standard of knowledge of international art production.Read More
Including the Korean masters like CHUNG Sang-Hwa, HA Chong-Hyun, LEE Kang-So, CHOI Byung-So, and LEE Bae, the gallery collaborates with numerous significant international artists such as Jannis KOUNELLIS, Tony CRAGG, Sean SCULLY, Dennis OPPENHEIM, Barthélémy TOGUO, among others to present high-quality exhibitions.
