Mark your park in Seoul
Aside from cosmetic fads, cheesy food and catchy tunes, South Korea has also been hard at work on its flourishing art scene. At the heart of the buzz is Seoul, a bustling hub of creative spaces and galleries. If you’re planning on doing the rounds, don’t miss Gallery Hyundai (14 Samcheong-ro, Jonno-gu, Seoul), the city’s oldest gallery, and
Gallery Factory (Jahamunro 10 gil 15, Jongno-gu, Seoul), a hip hub for up-and-coming artists. Take your outdoor art hunt a step further at
Anyang Art Park (131 Yesulgongwon-ro, Manangu, Anyang-si, Gyeonggi-do), located a quick bus ride south of Seoul. Wacky sculptures hide in the nooks and crannies of the forested hill—think grotesque sculptures of animals with extra feet and roses for heads, or a space enclosed by plastic beer boxes that glow in fluorescent hues as the sunlight peeps through.
