Departures|South Korean Art
I had a chance to visit the South Korean city of Gwangju last year for the city's biennale (10,000 Lives curated by New Museum's Director of Exhibitions, Massimiliano Gioni). Soon after, I headed to Seoul and explored the city's art scene. While there, I met with several gallerists, including One & J, who really helped elucidate the story of the city's art scene.
The experience helped tremendously when telling the story of the talented Ayoung Kim for Departures Asia issue. Click HERE for a link to the article.
For a recap of my trip to Gwangju, listen to my podcast broadcasted on Art International Radio in 2010.
