SEOUL, Sept. 8 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's biggest annual art show, the Korean International Art Fair (KIAF), will be held online later this month amid the prolonged novel coronavirus pandemic, the event's organizer said Tuesday.

At the KIAF Art Seoul 2020, some 4,000 artworks from 140 art galleries will be displayed through the online viewing room from Sept. 23-Oct. 18, according to the Galleries Association of Korea. A preview session for VIPs will open beginning Sept. 16.

Visitors can download the mobile edition of this year's art fair catalogue and look around the online gallery.

The annual show was originally to take place offline on Sept. 24-27 at the Convention and Exhibition Center (COEX) in southern Seoul, but the organizer changed its plans as the South Korean government has strengthened social distancing due to a recent hike in new COVID-19 cases.
