Gallery Hyundai continues its mission of gaining global recognition for Korea’s most influential artists and representing prominent international artists in Asia.
The gallery has played an integral role in the development of Korea’s contemporary art infrastructure and has helped foster the careers of major artists such as Kim Whanki, Nam June Paik, Lee Ufan, Lee Seung-taek, Chung Sang-Hwa, Kim Tschang-Yeul and Lee Kun-Yong to name a few. Each of these artists have indelibly influenced the course of Korean art history.
Currently, the gallery continues to represent the artists and estate of such esteemed artists such as Quac Insik, Park Hyunki, Lee Seung-taek, Chung Sang Hwa, Kim Tschang Yeul, Lee Kun Yong, and Lee Kang So. One of the gallery's mandates is to bolster the roster to support influential mid-career Korean contemporary artists such as Moon Kyungwon and Jeon Joonho, Seulgi Lee and recent additions to the programme artists such as Choi Minhwa, Kim Ayoung, and Kang Seung Lee. The gallery will continue its role introducing renowned foreign artists to the Korean audience and has hosted Korean exhibitions of artists such as François Morellet, Alice Neel, Tomás Saraceno, Ai Weiwei, Ryan Gander, Fred Sandback, Thomas Struth, and Sarah Morris.
Gallery Hyundai continues to support pioneering Korean and international artists through numerous channels including gallery exhibitions, museum and institutional collaborations and active participation in art fairs. The gallery remains proud of its history and continues its unwavering commitment to artists who push the boundaries of Contemporary art and forward-thinking curatorial visions.
