Produced by Frieze, with the support of CHANEL, 'NOW & NEXT' is a video series exploring developments in Korean art and culture through an intergenerational dialogue between artists. For the series, three emerging Seoul-based artists were paired up with more established figures in the Korean scene, for three intimate, wide-ranging conversations. 

By linking the accomplishments of “now” with the “next” generation, ‘NOW & NEXT’ responds to the spirit of CHANEL’s founder and her desire to be part of ‘ce qui va arriver’ – what happens next’.


“NOW” artist Jina Park spoke with “NEXT” artist Yaerim Ryu

 “NOW” artist Kelvin Kyung Kun Park spoke with “NEXT” artist Eusung Lee

“NOW” artist Heeseung Chung spoke with “NEXT” artist Kyoungtae Kim

‘NOW & NEXT’ was launched at a special event held at CHANEL’s Seoul flagship store, ahead of the opening of the first ever Frieze Seoul, with a conversation between Heeseung Chung and Kyuongtae Kim moderated by curator Hyejung Jang, attended by guests including CHANEL ambassador and art collector G Dragon.


Highlighting the distinctive and increasingly popular Korean cultural scene, ‘NOW & NEXT’ further strengthens CHANEL Korea’s local commitment to arts and culture.
