Private Tour of Dansaekhwa Korean Abstract Art, 14 octobre 2015
From October 8 to 23, Christie’s will showcase 33 paintings by eight Korean masters of modern abstract art, including those from the Dansaekhwa movement, at their Rockefeller Center West Galleries.
The Korea Society is happy to offer an exclusive private tour to our members, led by Dr. Young Yang Chung, the Chair of the Program Committee at The Korea Society, and Christie’s curator Yunah Jung. Twenty-six of the works will be available for private sale, while the other seven are on loan.
This first comprehensive group exhibition dedicated to this type of art in New York will feature artists Chung Chang Sup, Chung Sang-Hwa, Ha Chong-Hyun, Kim Whan-ki, Lee Ufan, Park Seo-Bo, Rhee Seundja, and Yun Hyong-Keun. To this group of painters, creating art is to form and conceive nature in their own minds, to return to nature and ultimately become one with it. Pursuing abstraction based on content and meaning, these Korean artists differ from Western formalist abstract artists, in that their work expresses the essence of Korean abstract art of forming nature.
