September 6th | 8pm — till late

Panel discussion duration: 40 minutes followed by a Q&A

Location: Alver (34 Gangnam-daero 102-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea)


What vectors will the art be developing in the future? How does it evolve in the era of new technologies? CEO The Art Newspaper Nick Sargent and TAEX Head of Development Stefanie De Regel will be debating on the future of art and its heritage, media art and the challenges of AI towards it. The discussion will be moderated by an Executive Director Maison Suri / Suri Paris Su Park.


By contributing to the art industry from different angles—media, theory, curation—the panellists will reflect on new trends that bring art into a new chapter with AI, new media and NFT and share their thoughts on the place of the Korean art scene in this ecosystem. How do curators and art critics perceive their criteria and their responsibility towards the art community today?




Nick Sargent is the CEO of The Art Newspaper — an online and print newspaper that covers the international art world, was founded in 1990 by Umberto Allemandi and Anna Somers Cocks on the original concept of Il Giornale dell'Arte, founded 1983. 


The Art Newspaper International Edition has offices in London and New York. Its unrivalled news and events coverage is fed by a network of sister editions, which together have more than 50 correspondents working in more than 30 countries, with editorial offices in Paris, Moscow and Shanghai. 


The Art Newspaper International enjoys complete editorial independence; its reputation as the journal of record for the art world, and the bible of the art industry, depends on this.



Stefanie De Regel is Head of Development at TAEX. She has always had a foot in art, starting out as an art lawyer with the specific focus on the digital renaissance that came with blockchain. She has been involved in numerous art projects across Europe and Asia that combine art and digital technologies — from AR or NFTs.




Su Park is an executive director of Maison Suri / Suri Paris. Based in Paris, Seoul, and New York. Passionate about cross-cultural exchange, she works in various international projects to create memorable experiences and bring together the best of both worlds, between the East and the West. Su oversees private collection and alternative asset management serving as an international director at a family office in Korea.


Su directed the newly opened Paris branch of Kukje, nation-leading Korean gallery, and earlier in the same year introduced immersive exhibitions highlighting Korean contemporary art to a global audience during the inaugural Frieze Seoul in 2022. Previously she has worked as a corporate partnership director of hospitality projects for the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic and as an assistant producer of art & culture programs at Arirang.

Digital art as a social remedy in solving technologically-induced problems

Digital technologies make our everyday life easier in many ways. However, excessive use may bring us some struggles such as anxiety from doom scrolling, insomnia, eye strain, and a feeling of social isolation (powered by 5G). At a glance, it could seem that screens and what we see on them are the overbearing evil of today. Hence, one might rightfully question how to “recover” from technologically-induced problems? One of the answers, other than straight-up digital detox, is digital art!
