About Us

2010년 부산 해운대에서 개관한 갤러리 이배는 국내외를 대표하는 작가들의 작품으로 수준 높은 기획 전시를 선보이며, 순수현대회화 뿐만 아니라 조각, 판화, 사진 등 시각 예술의 전 분야를 아우르는 다양한 전시기획으로 예술 공간으로의 본연의 의무를 충실히 이행하고 있다. 2010년부터 시행한 <이배 젊은 작가>와 <이배 패트런> 프로젝트를 통해 신진작가를 육성하고 기존 작가들의 작품성 향상을 위해 꾸준한 노력을 기울이고 있다. 갤러리 이배의 연구 공간인 <이배 아트랩>은 국내외 약 20,000여 작가들의 정보를 수록한 아카이브를 구축하였으며 이 자료들은 작가 및 미술시장동향 분석을 통한 수준 높은 전시기획의 주요 자료로서 활용된다. 2016년부터 시작된 해외아트페어 등 해외 전시를 통해 우수한 한국작가들을 해외에 알리고 한국미술의 국제적 위상을 고취시키는 데 주력하고 있다.

The 10-year-old gallery LEE & BAE was founded in Haeundae, Busan, Korea in 2010. Located in riverside of Suyeong with beautiful landscape and based in the area of 430 square meters, LEE & BAE organizes exhibitions of different themes every two months. Since its founding, the primary aim of the gallery has been to promote academic research and exhibitions of Korean contemporary art. Gradually, international exhibition exchange has also become one of the main objectives of the gallery.

The gallery promotes Korean established and emerging artists of contemporary art, thus focusing on identity of Korean contemporary art and the social aspects of visual art. Working with its represented and contracted artists, the gallery organizes curated exhibitions and plans academic exchange. LEE & BAE’s represented contemporary artists apply various media in their artworks to emphasize Korea’s social and democratic characteristics. They document various current global views through visual art.

LEE & BAE is committed to developing international collaboration and exchange of art. For many years, it has been selected for inclusion in international art fairs to promote Korean art. A significant number of artworks by the gallery’s represented artists have been included in the collection of the main art museums and private collectors. Besides a great focus on Korean art, LEE & BAE is also engaged in the exploration of the cultural characteristics of Korea while looking through the lens of the Asian art history in hope for Korean contemporary art to receive global attention.
