THE EASTERN GESTURE. Five Voices from the Korean Avant-garde

3 Mar 2020 — 9 May 2020

Between meditation and matter, thought and vision, the exhibition “The Eastern Gesture – Five Voices from the Korean Avant-garde” to be held at the Dep Art Gallery in Milan from 3 March to 9 May 2020, highlights the research made by five artists, who from the late 1950s have shaped and redefined Korean contemporary art: Chun Kwang Young, Park Seobo, Lee Bae, Lee Ufan, Kim Tschang-Yeul.

Fifteen medium and large format artworks, selected by the curator Gianluca Ranzi, bring out the complex dialectics between renewal and tradition that has involved the country in forty years of political and social agitations.
