SEOUL — The Prada Transformer has been transformed for a third time — it’s now a contemporary art gallery.
The PVC-covered tetrahedron designed by Rem Koolhaas, which sits on the grounds of the 16th-century Gyeonghui Palace here, is a venue for “Turn Into Me,” a selection of works by Swedish artist Nathalie Djurberg. Curated by the Fondazione Prada, the exhibition runs from Saturday to Sept. 13. The transformer previously contained a cinematic event, and before that, displayed the “Waist Down-Skirts by Miuccia Prada” exhibition, which opened the current series of interdisciplinary projects in April.
