About

Preview: Friday 29 September, 6–9pm

Spike Island is pleased to present the first exhibition in the UK by South Korean artist Kim Yong-Ik. The exhibition traces the progression of his work from his earliest Dansaekhwa paintings — a form of Korean abstraction — through his rejection of this tradition in the early 1980s, as his awareness of conceptual practice developed and life under Korea’s military dictatorship became increasingly repressive. It culminates in recent works characterised by his persistent questioning and deconstruction of contemporary art. The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Korean Cultural Centre, London, which presents a concurrent exhibition of the artist’s work.

Kim Yong-Ik's exhibition at Korean Cultural Centre takes place from 26 September to 4 November 2017.
