Some 60 galleries are participating in the art fair, presenting works by 300 artists. The offerings are focused on on small and medium-sized artworks, offering an intimate exploration of the latest art trends.

The art fair will start at 2 p.m. on Friday for VIP viewing, and will be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are available on Ticket Link and Interpark.

The Korea Herald is co-hosting the event in celebration of its 70th anniversary.

Works by Lee Ufan, Park Seo-bo, Lee Bae, American figurative artist Alex Katz, Swiss-born artist Ugo Rondinone and Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami will be on show at the fair.
