The exhibition is Christie’s first group exhibition in New York to showcase important Korean abstract art features leading artists such as Lee Ufan, Kim Whan-Ki and Rhee Seundya. A curated and comprehensive group show, this exhibition provides the opportunity to appreciate the concepts and aesthetics unique to this genre.

Kim Whan-Ki and Rhee Seundja are pioneers in the history of Korean abstract art, among the first to appropriate the pure

abstraction pioneered by artists in the US and Europe, adapting it to represent nature through organic motifs, geometrical forms, repetitive brushstrokes and careful layering of paint.

Lee Ufan, Park Seo-Bo, Chung Sang-Hwa, Yun Hyong-Keun, Chung Chang-Sup and Ha Chong-Hyun are the leading artists from Korean monochrome art movement, Dansaekhwa, which dominated the art scene of Korea throughout the 1970s.
