BARIM is a cross-genre collective of artists who are based in Gwangju, currently an art space, media space, and working studio in Gwangju, Korea. Established in October, 2013, and opened in Spring 2014, Barim deals with abstract to physical genres of the arts. Barim aims to focus on “process-based” works beyond existing genres of the arts, to create a community of artists, local citizens, and audience, and to support cultural and artistic exchanges between local and international artists through research. It also sets a goal to intervene and transcend different genres of the arts and to focus on process and discussion rather than completion. BARIM means a Korean traditional painting technique of shading and gradation, metaphorically blending the generic boundaries in art.
