World-renowned art fair ARTINTERNATIONAL, which will be held in Turkey for the first time this year, will host several art galleries and artists from around the world, among which are the Victoria Miro Art Gallery, Catalan painter Joan Miro, Alex Katz and many others.
Founded in London in 1985 and one of the most important contemporary art galleries not only in the U.K. but the entire world, Victoria Miro Art Gallery will come to Turkey for the first time as a part of ARTINTERNATIONAL from Sept. 4-6. The gallery, which represents Turner Award-winning artist Chris Ofili, will present the work of world-renowned artists in Istanbul.
Founded in SoHo in 1989, Kasmin cultivates a program in which historic figures of Post-War and Modernism are in meaningful dialogue with the evolving practice of both emerging and established contemporary artists.
The gallery represents and advocates for the legacy of such estates as Constantin Brancusi, William N. Copley, Max Ernst, Simon Hantaï, Jane Freilicher and Robert Motherwell. It has developed the careers of and continues to represent significant contemporary artists including Walton Ford, Robert Indiana, Iván Navarro, Les Lalanne and Roxy Paine.
With three spaces in Chelsea, New York, Kasmin mounts ambitious concurrent exhibitions alongside participation in major art fairs worldwide. In Fall 2018, the gallery will open its newest and largest space at 509 West 27th Street, which will expand the gallery’s footprint and provide a platform to build upon our curatorial mission. The new building will also feature a planted roof purposefully designed for exhibiting monumental sculptures, which parallels the gallery’s well-known engagement in international public art projects.
The gallery is dedicated to furthering the academic research of its artists and their oeuvres. The gallery has published comprehensive scholarly books, including William N. Copley X-Rated, Simon Hantaï’s Blancs, Alexander the Great: The Iolas Gallery 1955-1987, Impasse Ronsin and the first English translated monograph-scale book of Max Ernst’s sculpture. In Spring 2018, the gallery published a catalogue raisonné on Lee Krasner’s Umber Paintings.
Kukje Gallery has been a pivotal cultural hub in Seoul, Korea since its inception in 1982. Kukje Gallery is located in the heart of Samcheong-dong, a historically and culturally significant district. The gallery boasts three unique buildings, each titled according to its age: K1, K2, and K3. K2 opened in 2007 to celebrate the gallery’s 25th anniversary, and K3 opened in 2012 to commemorate its 30th anniversary.
Committed to showcasing both international and Korean artists, Kukje is widely celebrated for its diverse and ambitious programming. Specializing in modern and contemporary art, Kukje is often the first venue in Korea to present prominent artists, and major exhibitions have been staged to introduce leading international artists such as Anthony Caro, Anselm Kiefer, Alexander Calder, Louise Bourgeois, Donald Judd, Anish Kapoor, Bill Viola, Roni Horn, Candida Höfer, Julian Opie, Paul McCarthy, Jenny Holzer, Eva Hesse and Jean-Michel Othoniel.
In conjunction with its focus on international artists, Kukje is committed to promoting Korean artists abroad, introducing artists such as Haegue Yang, Kimsooja, Gimhongsok, Kyungah Ham, Yeondoo Jung, Sora Kim and Jae-Eun Choi at major art fairs around the world. Just as importantly, Kukje has made a strong commitment to post-war Korean artists including Ha Chong-Hyun, Lee Ufan, Chung Chang-Sup, Kwon Young-Woo, Park Seo-Bo, and Chung Sang-Hwa. In particular, Kukje has played a critical role in introducing Korean artists to important collectors, museums and cultural venues around the world, and many Korean artists supported by Kukje Gallery have exhibited in international biennials and major museum exhibitions.
These projects along with the gallery’s ambitious and scholarly exhibition catalogues and ongoing lecture series are what make Kukje a significant contributor in shaping Korea’s cultural landscape. Building on its unmatched reputation, Kukje continues to play a key role in developing the domestic art market as well as providing an important venue for introducing international trends.
