The contemporary Korean art scene is vibrant and exciting. Still relatively unknown in the West, Korean art is steeped in a rich, 5,000 year long cultural tradition that continues to be embraced by Korean artists in their examination of domestic and foreign influences currently shaping their modern society. The resulting work is diverse, sophisticated and uniquely Korean.
Fresh is a group exhibition of ten South Korean artists modernizing their heritage through the practices of painting and photography. Jihee Kim’s paintings, vividly rendered and pop-culturally influenced, use traditional Korean-style papers. Sahm-kwon Kim’s black + white photography resonates with the specificity of a time and place just out of reach.
