Galerie Pici is a Seoul based gallery with two floors of dedicated exhibition space in the Gangnam district and an office in New York City. Founded in 2009, we have designed our exhibition program into two parts: developing our artist’s long term careers and introducing diverse international artists to the Korean audience.
The gallery is devoted to mid-career Korean artists whose careers span more than 20 – 30 years. We work closely with our artists as they expand their practices to challenge new developments in painting, sculpture, mixed media, and installation. In addition, in support of artists from different regions of Korea that have been underrepresented, we created programming specifically for local artists which include JinMyung Park (Cheongju City), Jinlee Park (Incheon City), Hajin Kang (Incheon City), WonSook Choi (Incheon City), Yiyang Oh (GwangJu City) and Sobin Park (GwangJu City).
We aim to present a diverse array of contemporary art by bringing groups of international artists together to a Korean audience. This is accomplished by cultivating relationships with artists of different backgrounds and cultures, and working collaboratively with international institutions including the National Gallery, Sarajevo, BiH; Osaka Contemporary Art Center; Cornell Art Museum at Old School Sq, Florida; Austrian Embassy Seoul; Australia Embassy Seoul; Italian Embassy Seoul; Italian Cultural Institute Seoul; Ministry of External Relations of Brazil and Mexico Embassy in Korea.
Works from the gallery are permanent collection at MMCA, Korea; Incheon Artbank Collection; Seoul Museum of Art; Busan Museum of Art; GwangJu Art Museum, Korea; CheongJu Art Museum, Korea; Gangnam Severance Hospital, Korea; Severance Hospital Outdoor Sculpture Garden, Korea; Portland Art Museum, Portland, USA; New York Presbyterian Hospital, Brooklyn, USA.
