Earlier this month, there was an art festival that gathered a lot of attention at COEX in Seoul. 👀 The Korea International Art Fair (Kiaf), which is the largest art fair in Korea. 70,000 people were said to have flocked to Kiaf Seoul. This grand-scale art festival was a hit with not just the art circle, but even the business management circle. And this very art festival is set to take place for another run at Incheon Airport! 😃
The 2022 Kiaf Incheon Airport Special Exhibition is the focus of this post! This isn’t something just for art lovers, but for anyone who’s coming through Incheon Airport. Let’s dive into the details of the 2022 Kiaf Incheon Airport Special Exhibition!
2022 Kiaf Incheon Airport Special Exhibition Returns!

The Korea International Art Fair (Kiaf) was first launched in 2002 and is the first and largest international art market in Korea. For 20 years, it has built its reputation by introducing leading galleries and artists from within Korea and abroad.
