“No Space, Just A Place” is a large-scale exhibition organized in Seoul’s Daelim Museum that showcases the work of 10 independent art spaces together with artwork from Korean and international artists. Organized by Gucci, the project is inspired by Italian fashion designer Alessandro Michele’s reflections on eterotopia and proposes a new definition of what an “other space” might be.

“No Space, Just A Place” gives radical venues visibility and explores their “alternativeness” as a tool to defy authority and question autonomy. Art spaces like Audio Visual Pavilion, Boan1942, d/p and Hapjungjigu each present a project that is thematically tied to the idea of an alternative space as a utopian place in which to set empowering new narratives. Artist Sungsil Ryu – showcased by Boan1942 – explores the notion of artificial paradises, while artist Kang Woohyeok from Post Territory Ujeongguk uses the possibility of owning land on the moon to explore the relationship between the real and virtual; possessions and what we dream of possessing.

A selection of local and international artists are also exhibiting immersive installations inspired by the future and fantastical mythologies. Meriem Bennani, Olivia Erlanger, Cécile B. Evans and more question narrow perspectives and explore the potential of fiction in addressing stories of “otherness.” Their work continues to support the rich cultural landscape and the contemporary art scene in Seoul.

Take a virtual tour of “No Space, Just A Place” here or visit Seoul’s Daelim Museum. The exhibit will run until July 12.

Elsewhere, Katharina Grosse is presenting new works on paper and sculptures for the first online edition of Frieze New York.

‘No Space, Just a Place. Eterotopia’ is a new exhibition sponsored by Gucci, curated by Myriam Ben Salah @myriambensalah and propelled by #Gucci Creative Director @alessandro_michele’s meditations on society: the ethical and aesthetic value of the relationships between genres and gender, the notion of learnscapes, the urgency of self-expression and an ageless anthropological manifesto are key themes to him, which are reflected in the mission and ambitions of these alternative spaces. Held at the @daelimmuseum in Seoul—a location part of the #GucciPlaces network—the exhibit will run until July 12, 2020. Take a virtual tour of the exhibition with a special 360 video available through link in bio. #AlessandroMichele
