Current Exhibition

The Masterpiece – The Last Piece

2018.10.03.-10.16

Gallery NoW, a professional photography Gallery, presents its 13th-anniversary exhibition, The Masterpiece – The Last Piece. The exhibition was organized for the purpose of exploring the identity of modern photography and the future direction of the photography market. Most photographs are printed in signed and numbered limited editions as they can be easily duplicated multiple times. Whether the limited editions of the photographs are fully sold out is meaningful not only to the artist , but especially to the art world in Korea. In this sense, the exhibition brings together photographs whose limited editions are sold out and explore their characteristics in an attempt to explore the future direction of photography.
