    Major Programs

    Regular Residency Program

    Until now(May, 2018) we have supported 397 artists from 48 countries across the globe since 2009. We receive applications from artists at home and abroad once a year. Selected visual artists from home and around the globe can use the 24-hour-available studios and participate in various programs including expert support programs and special exhibitions to sharpen their skills.

    Open Studio

    Once a year, all of the studios at the Seoul Art Space Geumcheon are open to provide the opportunity to see artworks and workspaces of the artists in residence. During the Open Studio period, special exhibitions and various events on the sidelines are held to become a festival to attract attention and increase participation of the local community as well as of the arts and cultural fields.

    DA VINCI CREATIVE

    With the aim of finding creative ideas, the DA VINCI CREATIVE picks novel ideas of artists, engineers, and designers to combine and experiment with arts and technologies in diverse disciplines. In order to embody ideas, we provide the entire process of producing artworks from financial assistance and technical guidance to follow-up support possibly needed for overseas marketing and sponsorship of industries. The showcase of works that are supported is held every two years along with DA VINCI CREATIVE, a festival of media performance, exhibition, EDM concerts, lectures, and workshops.

    Seoul Art Space International Symposium

    Since 2009, we have hosted an annual international symposium as a stage of in-depth analysis and debate among experts at home and abroad about selected timely topics of arts and culture. The symposium has played a role in shaping a meaningful discourse among artists by taking the lead in tackling key issues of the arts world.
