The Seoul Art Space Geumcheon(SASG) is a residency for visual artists. SASG was remodeled from a printing factory located in Doksan-dong, Geumcheon-gu, Seoul, as part of the Seoul city government’s project to build spaces for creative activities.
SASG encourages experimental arts and respects diverse values of art. Accordingly, it has identified the contemporary visual art discourses and holds international symposiums.- Every year, it selects visual artists working in experimental practice through open call to run and support residency programs.
SASG tried a new visual arts direction with community artists, focusing on communication with local communities. Since 2013, SASG has sought to explore the potential of convergence between technology and art with a focus on media arts, facing the era of the 4th industrial revolution.
SASG is currently engaged in efforts to play a leading role in the International visual art, respecting diversity and valuing experimental art.
Regular Residency Program
SASG receives applications from artists in Korea and abroad once a year. Selected visual artists from Korea and around the world can use the 24-hour studios and participate in various programs, including expert support programs, and special exhibitions to sharpen their skills.
But now “The International Artists in Residency Program” has been suspended due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Once a year, all of the studios at the Seoul Art Space Geumcheon are open to provide an opportunity to view the artworks and workspaces of the artists in residence. During the Open Studio period, special exhibitions and various fringe events are held. It has become a festival to attract the attention and increase the participation of the local community, as well people from the fields of arts and culture.
Since 2009, SASG has hosted an annual international symposium as a platform for in-depth analysis and debate among experts in Korea and abroad on selected timely topics in arts and culture. The symposium has played a role in shaping a meaningful discourse among artists by taking the lead in tackling key issues in the arts world.
