First established in 1994 in New York by Dong Jo Chang and renamed as The Columns Gallery after moving to Seoul, the gallery has firmly fixed its reputation as one of the most powerful galleries in Korea. With numerous international exhibitions and occasional talks, The Columns aims at introduce both emerging and established artists to the Korean art scene. The gallery also seeks to enhance the presence of Korean contemporary artists on the international platform by participating in art fairs and biennials worldwide. Most importantly, The Columns strives to connect the Korean art scene with the global reality and become a leader in the exchange of contemporary art internationally. As the potential of art to enhance life is limitless, The Columns seeks to bring the global art scene to a broader public by creating a space for art to be more friendly.
