Located in the central Sagandong area of Seoul, PKM GALLERY SEOUL houses three floors of exhibition space, with a total of 3,500 square feet. In the fall of 2006, PKM GALLERY expanded into China opening a large gallery with over 8,000 square feet of exhibition space being one of the first major international galleries in the Caochangdi art district of Beijing. In the short time since then, the gallery's international outlook and challenging program has firmly cemented its reputation as one of the premier galleries in Beijing.
PKM GALLERY has launched its third space PKM TRINITY GALLERY with about 6,000 square feet of exhibition space in Seoul's Cheongdam area, a new center for art galleries and high-fashion brands. Its inaugural exhibition in April 2008 is New York based Korean artist Sangnam Lee's solo exhibition.
