Yeonju Sung (participating AHN-NYUNG | HELLO artist)
Moderators Jae Yang/Art-merge (art consultant/ curator) and Peter Frank (art critic) will utilize the AHN-NYUNG | HELLO and PAPERWORK exhibitions at LeBasse Projects as a starting point for Culture Flux: Korean Contemporary Art Now and in the Future.
CULTURE FLUX will examine key issues shaping the Korean contemporary art scene today and tomorrow: How do a growing Asian art market, a wired, web-savvy South Korea, and the recently internationalized contemporary art scene impact art work produced both within Korea and the Korean diaspora? How might such factors influence the creative process? How might they influence critical and collector evaluations of the work—in the United States, Europe and Korea?
*******All attendees will receive a complimentary "Ahn-Nyung | Hello" exhibition catalog*******

ABOUT AHN-NYUNG | HELLO and PAPERWORK:
January 22 - February 19, 2011 at LeBasse Projects
AHN-NYUNG | HELLO is an exhibition of 15 multimedia works by four Korean artists exploring the conceptual and visual currents igniting the Korean contemporary art scene today. Curator Jae Yang mines the vanguard of South Korea’s dynamic gallery scene to deliver the American audience an unprecedented survey of works that are as effusive in their naiveté as they are expansive in their aesthetic achievement. As a whole, AHN-NYUNG | HELLO uncovers a culture in transition in which memories are mutable, synthesis abuts tradition, and experience is subject to a regimen of creative re-envisioning. Featured artists include Hyung Kwan Kim, Seok Kim, Yeonju Sung, and Jin Young Yu. A companion exhibition, PAPERWORK, will take place in the gallery’s project space, featuring works on paper by artists Kim Eull, Tae Heon Kim, Kakyoung Lee, and Yong Sin.
