No Space, Just A Place is an invitation to transform the abstract form of the space as a simple geographical location, into a place, an embodied form activated by human experience.
No Space, Just A Place is a large-scale exhibition organized at the Daelim Museum to showcase the work of 10 independent art spaces from Seoul together with five artworks from Korean and international artists.
No Space, Just A Place is a multi-layered project built to support the rich cultural landscape and the contemporary art scene in Seoul. Drawing from the ancient concept of PROXENIA, it seeks to formulate a new definition of the ‘being together’ while not being one thing.
