Following his solo presentation at Lisson Gallery, Lee Ufan will take part in 'Dansaekhwa', an official collateral event of the 56th Venice Biennale at the Palazzo Contarini-Polignac, curated by Yongwoo Lee.
Organised by the Boghossian Foundation, this exhibition will showcase the works of key masters who defined Dansaekhwa’s development in the 1970s, providing an essential conceptual framework to appreciate this important movement. “A subject of renewed interest to both Korea and internationally, this is a timely exhibition that explores a group of artists whose exquisitely beautiful and politically engaged work continues to have a profound influence on contemporary art.”
Lee Ufan will create a new sculptural work for this show, which will occupy the entire ground floor of Palazzo Contarini-Polignac. Other participating artists include Chung Chang-Sup, Chung Sang-Hwa, Ha Chong-Hyun, KIM Whanki, Kwon Young-Woo and Park Seo-Bo.
The show runs from 7 May – August 15 2015. For more information visit the Boghossian website.
