The upcoming event will be the third iteration of The Gateway series. Following the massive success of the five-day festival during Miami Basel last year, which witnessed 12,000 attendees and collaborations with brand behemoths like Instagram (Meta), RTFKT, Porsche, and MetaMask, this year’s The Gateway: Korea will bring the celebrated brand global for the first time.

The event will take place at S-Factory, Seoul, Seongdong-gu, Yeonmujang 15-gil, 11 에스펙토리 3층 301호, and promises a blend of technological advancements and creative energies, reiterating the dynamic evolution of art in the digital era.
