Seoul Art Space Seogyo

Overview

Seoul Art Space Seogyo first opened to the public in 2009 by remodeling Seogyo-dong community center. We have been operated for the sustainable development of the culture and arts ecosystem around the Hongdae area since 2013 with the Artists Cooperative Group, a culture and arts governance consisting of artists. The Space has been committed to supporting creative, experimental, cultural and artistic activities and activating the network of artists, playing a role as a support hub for visual artists by means of career specific support programs covering ‘rising-promising-established artists.’

Major Project

[Seogyo Artists Cooperative Group Arts Projects]

Small Art Project Support Project ‘Soaek Da Com’

The Project is to support small, but creative, cultural and artistic activities take place around the Hongdae area. We have made the art support process and requirements as simple as possible in order to improve complicated art support system as well as invaluable arts projects keep alive.

Space Support Project ‘Share Project: Lab’

Spaces (exhibition hall on 1st floor and multi-purpose facility underground) have been divided into many ‘labs’ for presentation/demonstration/production of creative, experimental projects. The labs are designed for a ‘space share project’ to provide opportunities to make ideas come true and boost seamless exchanges among artists of various disciplines who share the space.

Unpublished Recording Support Project ‘Mi.Won.Chang.Go’

This is a project to support new musicians. It plays unannounced/demo sound sources of new independent musicians, who have no opportunity to introduce their music to the public, in offline places throughout the year (Seogyo Art Center and cultural complex near Hongik University). It also provides them an opportunity to perform live. In addition, the artists are given support with things necessary to perform their music (album cover design, profile photo, live video clip) through one-to-one matching with artists in visual art field. A networking party is held so these independent musicians can meet people in the music industry and expand their network.

Hongdae Area Space Cooperation Project

We host roundtable meetings and forums as a venue for many different cultural complexes in the Hongdae area to introduce characteristics of their space to each other and discuss common issues, on the basis of which a collaboration festival is held later in the year.
