Kumho Museum of Art

Opening Year

Seoul 18, Samcheong-ro, Jongno-gu




In 1989, Kumho Asiana Cultural Foundation opened Kumho Gallery in Gwanhun-dong, Jongno-gu, and seven years afterward, they built a new building with larger space and facilities in Sagan-dong. The Gallery moved to this new building to celebrate the 7th anniversary of its inauguration in November 1996 and expanded its role as contemporary art museum. Kumho Museum of Art has been contributing to the advancement of art, holding exhibitions for established artists and operating various programs to take a long view of contemporary art. The Kumho Art Studio offers studios to artists for their creation and supports art contest for the Kumho Young Artist. Through these processes, many young artists have been found and raised for a new chapter in Korean contemporary art scene. The museum has been trying to expand the area of contemporary art through design and architecture exhibitions based on the museum’s design collection which started in mid-20s. In addition, The Kumho Academy which started in 1987 has been providing various theory classes on arts including music, architecture, and design to help people understand more deeply about art.
