SeMA Information



(Seosomun-dong) 61 Deoksugung-gil, Jung-gu, Seoul 04515 Rep. of KOREA



The Seoul Museum of Art is a representative art museum of Seoul, the capital of Korea and a central city of Asia. It aims to be a ‘Beautiful, Good, and Smart Museum’ while also jumping up to the level of the world-renowned art museum.

SeMA is working to become a world-class art museum by holding refined exhibitions such as the SeMA Blue for young artists of Korea, SeMA Gold for middle aged artists, SeMA Green for elder artists, Special Overseas Exhibitions, and International Exchange Exhibitions – collaborations with famous art museums from around the world. Furthermore, SeMA promotes internationalization through the international media art biennale and the residency program of SeMA Nanji Residency. At the same time, SeMA is promoting interaction and communication with visitors by turning the whole area of Seoul into an art museum. We are accomplishing this through the art communication project with an approximately 3,500 piece collection including works from the masters in art history such as Hwan Gi Kim, Young Gook Yoo, Nam June Pai, Woo Hwan Lee, Seo Bo Park, and Myoung Ro Yoon as well as contemporary artists.

Furthermore, SeMA is becoming the place for social education and the distributor of culture and arts for many citizens through educational programs such as :
● The SeMA Academy for the Public - a program for students and persons with disabilities
● SeMA Outreach - a program that brings art to people

Seoul Museum of Art is located on the Doldam-gil of Deuksugung (palace). It is the place for culture and arts as well as meaningful social education that reflects cosmopolitan ideas, regional characteristics, professionalism, and popularity. It is where one can fully enjoy the beauty of art while experiencing the heart of the city. Finally, it is a museum that is working to represent not only Seoul but Asia.
