Since its foundation in 2001 by Park Kyung-mee, the former commissioner of the Korean pavilion at the 49th Venice Biennale, PKM Gallery has established itself as one of the leading contemporary art galleries in the world, representing prominent Korean and international artists through its creative programs in the context of global contemporary art.
PKM Gallery began with a renovated three-story residential building, providing 3,500 square feet of exhibition space in Hwa-dong, Central Seoul. The gallery successfully grew in stature with its various exhibition programs while actively promoting Korean emerging artists on the international stage. In the spring of 2008, PKM Trinity Gallery, located in Cheongdam-dong, opened as the second venue of PKM Gallery which had its focus on representing world-renowned artists in its impeccable exhibition space measuring more than 6,000 square feet. The gallery contributed greatly to making Cheongdam-dong as a cultural hub of Seoul, not a mere fashion and upscale commerce area but also a new destination for art lovers. In the spring of 2015, PKM Gallery will relocate to Samcheong-dong in the heart of the capital with its renaissance as the hub of art and culture. Its spectacular architecture of 6,200 square feet will become the landmark of this ancient quarter of the city where tradition and cutting-edge innovation coexist.
As one of the leading galleries in the global art world, PKM Gallery is committed to promoting contemporary art in the international artistic context and to providing sophisticated aesthetic experience to a wide audience worldwide.
