(The) sky in my country Korea is intense blue, and our east sea is so clear and pure that it would dye the fabric into blue – Kim Whan-ki

Unlike for Yves Klein, the colour blue was a hue that meant home to the pioneering Korean painter Kim Whan-ki who moved to Paris in the 1950’s and became the father of the Korean abstract art movement. Its purity, transparency and tranquillity reflect the virtue of Korean traditions that played a significant role in shaping Korean modernity and art. The nostalgic hue continues to inspire Korean artists of today. This exhibition will present new works demonstrating how contemporary artists are making, working with, and feeling ‘Blue’.

We are delighted to announce artists for our upcoming exhibition, ‘Korean Blue’ and looking forward to present their stunning new works and signature works exploring Blue as a colour of Korean art.
