Since its opening in 1992, Gwangju Museum of Art has been a part of modern art history in Korea and gained ground as a cultural zone
Beginning with the opening of our new building in Jungoe Park in 2007, the Sangrok Exhibition Hall was opened in 2008, and 2009 saw the opening of the Beijing Residency in China. This was followed in 2012 by Gallery GMA in Sagan-dong in Seoul, followed by opening Gwangju Museum of Photography, G&J Gwangju Jeonnam Gallery, and Young Artist Support Center in 2016. Through these expansions, we hope to contribute to the cultural development of fine art and provide a lifestyle of culture and bliss for the general public by becoming more accessible.
We would like those who visit Gwangju Museum of Art to have a richly moving experience. We promise to strive contributing for a richer world as an art museum that draws closer to citizens, an art museum that works together with artists, and an art museum offering classes to the culturally disadvantaged.
Thank you very much.
Director, Gwangju Museum of Art
