Lloyd Choi Gallery

Collect 2020, Stand E7, East Wing

Lloyd Choi Gallery is a dedicated platform for contemporary Korean artists, founded in 2019 by Lloyd Choi, former curator for the Korea Craft and Design Foundation's Collect exhibitions. The gallery represents pioneering and established master craft artists alongside the most exciting young talents who are blurring the lines between art, craft and design in South Korea today. The gallery focuses on Korean studio ceramics and believes in the power of art to enlighten, a concept firmly rooted in Korean tradition.

For Collect 2020 the gallery will introduce 'Do-jo', a groundbreaking South Korean ceramics movement. Do-jo describes the ceramic sculpture that came to prominence in the 1980s, merging the fields of ceramics and fine art, and the gallery has selected key artists whose practice reflects the spirit of Do-jo, including the original pioneering artist Lee Gee-Jo.
