About the Fair

Art Edition is Korea’s only international edition art fair devoted to multiples art. Initiated by Korea Print Photography Promotion Association, the fair was launched in 1995 under the name of Seoul International Print Photo Art Fair. Since its inception, the event has been supporting professional development of printmakers and photographers. As the methods and media of art-making have evolved over the years with the use of digital technologies, so has the identity of the fair as a genre-specific art fair. In order to establish an art market that differs from other Korean art fairs and to let the audience understand multiple art in a modern context, the title of the fair changed to ART EDITION in 2010 encompassing wide range of edition art from prints to photos and 3D multiples to computer based art.

Returning for a fifth year, Art Edition 2014 is hosted by Hangaram Art Museum of Seoul Arts Center and sponsored by Ministry of Culture Sports and Tourism and Arts Council Korea. Art Edition 2014 showcases a great range of signed limited edition art under the motto, “Limited and Unique”.

Art Edition brings together leading galleries from across the world representing renowned and new artists. Total 51 exhibitors from 15 different countries including Greece, Sweden and Israel will participate in the art fair introducing over 2000 works by 300 artists. This event is expected to be the largest edition art market in Korea featuring works by internationally renowned artists such as, Nam June Paik, Robert Indiana, Robert Rauschenberg, Alain Clement, Joan Miro, Tchang-Yeul Kim, as well as contemporary artists that are well known in Korea, such as Zhou Chunya, Feng Zhengjie, Byungjin Kim, Jeonglok Lee. ART EDITION 2014 attempts to show interaction between diverse genres of art as well as intersection of art and enterprise through collaboration with one of the leading companies in Korea. The collaboration between KOTRA (Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency) and Jemma Han (Creative Director of KOTRA) to create innovative artistic products will show a new direction and endless possibilities of edition art.
