The largest Asian art market, Korea International Art Fair 2017 is hosted by Korea Galleries Association, and will be held at Seoul COEX Hall A & B. Each year KIAF hosts a meaningful country as a Guest country of honor and introduces the country’s galleries and artists to the domestic art market as well as the diversity of contemporary art, which revitalizes the art market.
