Want to take your mind off the Christmas rush and desperate clamour in the shops to buy presents in time? Take a load off and stop by the Korean Cultural Centre for the NyLon: New York / London Exchange Exhibition taking place from the 25th Oct 2011 – 25th Nov 2011. With only two weeks left, now is the time to go, before you miss your chance.
The Korean Cultural Service New York & the Korean Cultural Centre UK present NyLon: London–New York Exchange Exhibition. This collaboration features 4 contemporary artists based in New York and London: Buhm HONG, Jean SHIN, Meekyoung SHIN and Je BAAK.
From November 16, 2011 to December 16, 2011 the exhibition NyLon: New York – London Exchange Exhibition brings together four Korean artists based in New York and London. As it marks our first exchange exhibition with the Korean Cultural Centre UK, NyLon attempts to pave a new way for these two institutions to promote Korean artists on the global art scene.
Our four exciting artists Buhm HONG, Jean SHIN, Meekyoung SHIN and Je BAAK explore a range of cross-cultural influences through their work, inspired by their lives in two of the world’s leading cultural capitals. The works of four artists present multi-faceted and diverse interests and aspects of contemporary art produced in the two cities, sometimes in parallel and at other times crossing paths.
