Highlights from Korea International Art Fair 2017

Korea International Art Fair returns for its 16th edition this September, bringing together groundbreaking and thought-provoking artworks of the highest quality in order to realize its ideal of becoming the pre-eminent art platform of South Korea. This year sees some major changes, with the most prominent being that the fair has done away with its guest-country of honor to boost diversity among participants.

Held from 21st to 24th September at Seoul COEX Hall A & B, the fair will host 167 galleries from 13 countries across the five-day event. Big name collectors such as Jean Boghossian of the Boghossian Foundation and Abdullah Karroum, director of Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha, Qatar, are set to attend the fair.

Below are some of our picks from the selection of Asian contemporary art that will be on show at KIAF 2017!
