John Pai: Eternal Moment

March 6 – April 18, 2024
Opening Reception: March 6th, 6-8pm

The Korean Cultural Center New York is honored to present John Pai: Eternal Moment, a retrospective exhibition at the gallery of its new building located at 122 East 32nd Street in New York City this Spring.

The exhibition celebrates John Pai’s legacy as a seminal figure in the tapestry of Korean arts in New York City and the world. His life and works reflect the enduring spirit of innovation, artistry, and the rich narrative of Korean history.

This historical retrospective highlights works from Pai’s oeuvre. From his earliest works as a young graduate student at Pratt Institute in the 1960s with influences from early Constructivism, the show spans over six decades, giving a comprehensive understanding of the vast breadth of Pai’s artistic realm and his unwavering dedication to his craft and vision. Included in this landmark show are excerpts from the artist’s oral history with historian Leyla Vural conducted in the summer of 2021, and the unveiling of an intimate cinematic portrait of the artist, commissioned by the Korean Cultural Center New York (KCCNY).
