Her other interests are global contemporary art and the art market. Gahee In’s previous research explores the collections of Peggy Guggenheim and Charles Saatchi. She has had work experience at art galleries, at the Korea Private Museum Association as an assistant researcher in Seoul, Korea, as well as an internship at Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
