Introduction

Home | Incheon Art Platform | Introduction
Incheon Art Platform (IAP, formally Jung-gu Arts and Cultural Center) is a multiplex cultural arts center located in Haen-dong, Jung-gu. The site was purchased and developed by Incheon Metropolitan City, and is transforming the turn of the century structures and nearby buildings as part of the old downtown restoration project. IAP operates under the patronage of the Incheon Arts and Culture Foundation with the artists-in-residency program at its core. The program fosters the creation of new art by supporting artists and research scholars from a variety of backgrounds.

Incheon Art Platform’s historic and strategic location enhances the area’s comprehensive revitalization efforts, provides a new focus and perspective towards culture and the arts, and offers a nurturing venue for productive creativity from art’s active production to its criticism and dissemination. IAP engages the public in artistic discourse through its education and arts programs, which the city of Incheon actively promotes as it joins the global art community. Both IAP and Incheon city continue to support the effort to realize the dream of creating a cultural city, and endeavors to promote an international and creative dialogue between artistic communities and audiences from all around the world.
