Gana Art Center [가나아트센터] —also known on occasion as Gana Art Gallery— is a contemporary art gallery located in Seoul’s neighborhood Pyeongchang [Pyeongchang-dong/평창동], in the Jongno District [Jongno-gu/종로구]. It remains, in its own words, as “one of Korea’s most prestigious and influential art institutions today”.

Originally established in Insa-dong in 1983 by founder Lee Ho-jae, the gallery moved to this current location in 1998. This Pyeongchang building was created by Paris-based architecture firm Wilmotte & Associés SA in cooperation with South Korean Total Design. The main challenge and concern for the architecture team was “to make best use of the natural slope of the ground and the magnificent view that the site enjoys”.

The building is adjacent to Gana Art Center Seoul Auction [서울옥션하우스], home to Café Motte and also part of the Gana enterprise. It is also vis-à-vis D.Space [디스페이스].
