BB&M | A Contemporary Art Gallery in Seoul

UPCOMING EXHIBITION

MAGNETIC FIELDS | AUGUST 27-OCTOBER 8, 2022

LEE BUL | BAE YOUNG-WHAN | JEONGSU WOO | HEECHEON KIM | JIN HAN LEE 

 

Coming up at BB&M, Magnetic Fields marks the launch of the fall season with a showcase of new works by contemporary Korean artists represented by the gallery. Headlined by Lee Bul, widely recognized as the leading contemporary Korean artist of her generation, the exhibition also presents long-awaited new works by Bae Young-whan, a key figure identified with the influential, albeit loosely defined, post-minjung movement, which melds neo-conceptual strategies to a social consciousness informed by Korea's turbulent modernity. The show also features a selection of new paintings and works on paper by Jeongsu Woo, among the most closely watched young Korean painters working today, ahead of his solo exhibition slated to open later this fall at BB&M. Jin Han Lee, another painter who has garnered considerable acclaim (inclusion in Bloomberg New Contemporaries and Saatchi New Sensations), will also unveil new works. Rounding out the show will be an immersive VR installation by Heecheon Kim, a young artist fast rising in international prominence with video works that engage with various post-Internet cultural phenomena against the background of a technologically-charged Korean society.
