No Space, Just A Place: Seoul’s Alternative Art Scene


An exhibition at the Daelim Museum in Seoul, powered by Gucci, celebrates the city’s alternative art scene and speculative futures

A largescale exhibition at the Daelim Museum in Seoul, powered by Gucci and its Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s reflections on eterotopia, and curated by the Renaissance Society’s incoming executive director, Myriam Ben Salah, sees ten of the city’s independent art spaces sharing a platform with five international artists to explore the catalytic value of creative disruption and to offer a vision of brave new worlds.

Works by Meriem Bennani, Olivia Erlanger, Cécile B. Evans, Kang Seung Lee and Martine Syms sit alongside installations that were created or displayed in the meatyards, warehouses, private residences or abandoned shops that house Seoul’s alternative art scene, in an exhibition that celebrates both the local and the global, via the social, cultural and creative forces that transform space into place. A new video produced by ArtReview for Gucci allows viewers to tour the show and meet the people, artworks and experimental practices that made it happen.
