The Gana Art Gallery is located in the residential area of Pyeongchang-dong, in the foothills of Mount Bukhansan. It’s the largest exhibition space in South Korea, featuring three halls showcasing over 400 exhibitions. The first exhibition hall features international works from throughout history, displaying many pieces by artists that are now deceased. The other two vast halls are used for temporary exhibitions, plus a range of plays, concerts, and other special events. There is also a restaurant, a shop, and a seminar room on-site, making the Gana Art Gallery a multi-functional cultural center.
Both the exterior and interior of the center blend a sleek, modern design alongside more natural styles. The building is the work of architect, Jean-Michel Wilmotte, who also designed Incheon International Airport.
The Gana Art Gallery is open Monday to Sunday, from 10am until 7pm. To reach the Kana Art Gallery by public transport from Seoul, take Subway Line 3 to Gyeongbokgung. Leave the station at exit 3 and take the 1020 or 1711 bus from the Gyeongbokgung Station bus stop nearby. Alight at Lotte Apartments and walk to the gallery from there.
