Gallery FACTORY is an art space and art consulting office. Founded in 2002 as FACTORY Arts & Crafts, it was primarily dedicated to introducing different genres in fine arts, design, and performing arts, and developing original design products conceived by different artists.
In 2005, FACTORY moved from Samchung-dong to Hyoja-dong, which is in the same neighborhood as the Blue House and Gyeongbok Palace. It also changed its direction more toward presentation and interpretation of the work of young and upcoming artists, in all media, and the development of audience participation through workshop programs and gallery talks.
Today, FACTORY seeks to be a vital cultural resource for the city of Seoul, and to serve constituencies beyond the city with its educational programs, project-based public art projects, publications, and international exchange programs.
