Since announcing the first Frieze Seoul, alongside Kiaf SEOUL, we’ve been on a journey. With the local community—and our Seoul-based colleagues, such as Patrick Lee and Minju Kweon—as our guides, we’ve discovered the thriving cultural activity in the city. Intended as a tool for navigating the so-called Frieze Week at the fair, around Seoul and beyond, this issue also celebrates art from Korea and the Korean diaspora as part of a global dialogue. In so many ways, the journey has just begun.
