Gallery Hyundai

Hyundai Hwarang, now known as Gallery Hyundai (its name was changed from “Hyundai Hwarang” to “GALLERY HYUNDAI” in 1987) was founded in 1970 and it is currently the oldest gallery in Korea. Hyundai Hwarang is considered by many to be the first gallery in Korea.

The name of the gallery, “Hyundai,” is a noun meaning “the latest,” “now” or “new” and used to refer to modern and contemporary in Korean. This reflected the atmosphere of the time, which demanded modernization through distinction from the past or things of the old era. Thus, the early English description of Hyundai Hwarang was “Modern Art Gallery,” using the word “modern” to represent the atmosphere of “latest” or “modernization” in Korea at the time.
