Guided Tour of the Saatchi Gallery
Wednesday 5th September 2012, 6.15pm
Duke of York’s HQ, Kings Road, London SW3 4RY
(nearest underground station: Sloane Square)
The Anglo-Korean Society has arranged this exclusive tour together with a private viewing of the Korean Eye Exhibition by courtesy of Nigel Hurst the Director of the Gallery.
This is a unique platform to bring contemporary Korean art to a new international audience at the Saatchi Gallery to coincide with the Olympic Games. The exhibition presents the largest survey of new Korean art to date, and highlights an exciting group of artists who have recently emerged on the global art scene, producing work that provides an arresting insight into the future of contemporary art in Korea. Korean Eye 2012 will be the very first time this group of artists have shown their work together, demonstrating a very diverse range of influences including fluency with technology, incredible attention to design and detail, and more historic factors, such as western classical art and Korea’s many years of occupation by foreign powers.
It will also be the first time the Saatchi Gallery has helped curate an exhibition of this scale from work outside its own collection, selecting the final 33 artists from Korean Eye’s long list of 2000 artists who entered over 28,000 works for consideration.
To be followed by a reception with wine & canapés
