Art at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies (AAIPS) is committed both to drawing people together through their passion for contemporary art and to providing a noncommercial space for creative and innovative expression.
Exhibitions at AAIPS are presented in an elegant, 290-square-meter ground floor gallery space of the Asan Institute building. It is set in a historic neighborhood by the Gyeonghui Palace, in the heart of downtown Seoul. The building was designed by Kerl Yoo, founding partner of iARC, and is noted for its free-form atrium and minimal glass façade, complementing the traditional architecture of the Gyeonghui Palace.
