PKM Gallery has been reinforcing its position with exhibition programs for major artists who lead the art scene at home and abroad since its opening in 2001. As one of the representatives in Asia, PKM has introduced artists to major art fairs such as Basel/Basel, Art Basel in Hong Kong, Frieze, Frieze Masters, FIAC, to name a few.
Korean contemporary artists Cody Choi, Koo Jeong A, Young-In Hong, and others who have been represented by PKM, have received great acknowledgment in the international art scene due to their interest in the public consciousness and the pursuit of social issues, thus expanding the conceptuality of contemporary art. Their works have been introduced at major art events, such as Biennale di Venezia, São Paulo Biennial, and Triennale di Milano, gaining prominent international recognition.
In addition, amid changes in international awareness of Korean art since the 2010s, PKM focused on rediscovering the art historical and market value of Korean modern masters such as Yun Hyong-keun, Chung Chang-Sup, and Kwon Jin Kyu on the global art scene. Suh Seung-Won, the leader of the Korean Avant-garde Movement, is also being rediscovered internationally for his artwork and history. With the recent addition of the estate of Yoo Youngkuk, a master of abstract art, as an exclusive artist, PKM Gallery now represents a fuller range of post war masters than ever before.
Moreover, PKM has been organizing large-scale exhibitions of artists such as Gabriel Orozco, John Baldessari, Dan Flavin, Olafur Eliasson, Jorge Pardo, etc., who lead the international art scene and hold an important position in contemporary art.
PKM has been running diverse exhibition programs showing local and global art trends while focusing on the reevaluation of some major Korean artists who are expanding internationally. In 2022, PKM Gallery successfully participated in the first Frieze Seoul which drew a vast interest at home and abroad.
