Project Space SARUBIA is a nonprofit gallery devoted to supporting experimental art in various areas of fine art, architecture, music, dance, and film. It selects creative and experimental artists regardless of their age, background, and artistic tendencies, and provides them with an environment to produce and exhibit their work. Established in 1999 in Insa-dong, Seoul, at the former site of SARUBIA Coffee Shop, famous for its important role in the cultural scene of Seoul, Project Space SARUBIA became a pioneer of alternative spaces in Korea. Today, the gallery continues its service to alternative contemporary art in Korea and helps guide its development.
