The largest Asian art market, Korea International Art Fair (KIAF), hosted by the Korea Galleries Association, will be held at Seoul COEX Hall A & B from September 21 to 24, 2016.
Each year KIAF selects a meaningful country as a guest country of honor and introduces the country’s galleries and artists to the domestic art market as well as the diversity of contemporary art, which vitalizes the art market. The UK, Australia, Spain, France, Germany, Latin America, India, China, and other countries have been hosted as guest countries of honor and are receiving a positive reaction in the domestic art market. As part of this experience about 20 countries’ 180 galleries are participating in KIAF annually.
KIAF attracts prominent global art collectors and many art-related people to Korea, aiming to establish an order in the circulation of art, and vitalize the art market through the expansion of clientele as well as the art market.
Over the years, KIAF has established an unrivaled reputation as Asia’s leading fair for art. It aims to strengthen this position by focusing on core values – expertise in Asian contemporary art; and excellence. This project reinforces the character of a fair that defi nes excellence in art and att racts collectors, curators, and other art lovers not only from the Asian region but also from all over the world. KIAF continually improves the quality, breadth, and ways of displaying the items for sale, while at the same time presenting memorable exhibitions and taking ground-breaking initiatives that have changed the way the fi ne art world does business. As can be seen, KIAF’s pre-eminent position today is a result of much hard work over many years.
