In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast we discuss last week’s Frieze Seoul with Andy St. Louis, a Seoul-based art critic and founder of Seoul Art Friend, an online platform dedicated to promoting contemporary Korean art. First, Andy shares the mood of the contemporary art market in Seoul leading up to Frieze Seoul. Then, he reveals if there was any negative impact to this year’s Frieze Seoul due to it occurring at the same time as The Armory Show in New York. After, Andy reveals how sales were at this year’s Frieze Seoul as well as how the fair compared to last year’s inaugural edition. Lastly, Andy speaks on the strengthening relationships between Korean collectors and foreign galleries in large part due to the presence of the fair.
