Busan International Art Fair

Event Name

2022 Busan International Art Fair (2022 BIAF)

Meaning of the event

Busan International Art Fair introduces a wide range of works to present the most modern perspective of contemporary art to the audience, not the fragmentary trend of modern art, and invites great artists who penetrate the present while guaranteeing the tradition and uniqueness of Korean beauty. and it is a new type of "open art big marketplace" where artists and art lovers can directly trade works at reasonable prices, breaking down various boundaries that existed inside existing art culture and pursuing wide communication.

It also actively introduces non-Western art and leads continuous cooperation with overseas art circles, including influential Asian artists such as China, Japan, India, and Vietnam, and strives to create a valuable opportunity to gain broad sympathy based on a deeper understanding of cross-boundary modern art.

The Busan International Art Fair, which was launched in 2007 in Busan, a cultural city, and marks its 21st anniversary in 2007 to create a new wind as the center of the international art market, will be held in BEXCO, Busan, from December 1st (Thu) to 5th (Mon).
