ASIA WEEK NEW YORK 2024
Korean Artists in Paris
March 15 – April 5, 2024
Special Asia Week Hours: Monday-Friday, 11am-6pm (otherwise by appointment)
We are pleased to present Korean Artists in Paris for this year’s Asia Week New York. Curated by Heakyum Kim and Pierre Cambon, the former curator at the Musée Guimet, this exhibition showcases the work of Chung Sanghwa, Shin Sung Hy, Nam Kwan and Kim Sang-lan, four Korean artists who have lived and worked in Paris. Known in both Korea and France, their successful careers cover a great span of time, from the 1950s to the present. Each artist demonstrates how the two countries impacted their work.
