SEOUL.- White Cube has announced the opening of a second permanent gallery in Asia this autumn in Seoul, South Korea. Situated in the heart of the bustling Gangnam-gu district, White Cube Seoul will comprise of exhibition spaces, a private viewing room and offices spanning over 300m² (3230 sq ft) and will be led by the gallery’s Korean Representative and Director Jini Yang, who joined in 2018.

The ground-floor, street facing gallery is in close proximity to Dosan Park and cultural institutions including the SONGEUN Art and Cultural Foundation. It is located in a striking, ceramic-encased building, which is also home to the Horim Art Centre, a renowned private museum with an extensive collection of Korean modern art and antiquities.

One of the world’s leading contemporary art galleries, White Cube represents over 60 international artists and artist estates. The gallery’s programme extends across Europe, Asia and the US, with spaces in London, Hong Kong, Paris, New York and West Palm Beach, as well as off-site projects and online exhibitions.

White Cube Seoul’s programme will feature established and emerging artists from inside and outside of the gallery’s roster, alongside group exhibitions.

In autumn 2023, in addition to the new space in Seoul, White Cube will also open its first public gallery in New York. It will be located on the Upper East Side at 1002 Madison Avenue.

Wendy Xu, General Manager, Asia, said: ‘White Cube has been operating in Asia since 2012 from our headquarters in Hong Kong. In tandem, over the past decade we have been steadily building our team across Asia, including in Seoul, one of its most promising new art markets. As White Cube’s second permanent space on the continent, White Cube Seoul represents a major development in our global strategy for the gallery and contributes to a very exciting time in White Cube’s history.’

Jini Yang, White Cube Korea Representative and Director, said: ‘The Korean art scene is characterised by deep connections with both the local and the global. This is perfectly displayed in our new White Cube location, which is in close proximity to the vibrant and busy Gangnam area, next to Dosan Park, and shares a building with the Horim Art Centre, whose collection of Korean objects and art I personally have admired for many years. I look forward to deepening White Cube’s connections with the local art community and contributing to Korea's growing ecosystem.’
