As a part of this effort, KAMS awards grants, through the Fund for Korean Art Abroad (FKAA), to international art institutions that organize exhibitions and projects outside Korea, for which Korean artists are invited to participate. By offering financial support to international art institutions, KAMS provides opportunities for promising Korean artists to penetrate the international art market and strengthen their network within the global art community.
