Thursday 3 March, 6.30pm
Katharine Kostyál, Curator of ‘Park Seo-Bo: Ecriture 1967-1981’, currently on view at White Cube Mason’s Yard, will take part in a discussion at the Korean Cultural Centre on Park Seo-Bo and the Korean monochrome movement, Dansaekhwa.
The term Dansaekwha refers to a radical style of minimalist painting that emerged in South Korea in the 1970s. Park Seo-Bo, along with artists such as Lee Ufan, is acknowledged as one of the leading exponents of the movement, which continues to be influential today.
Kostyál will be joined by Lecturer in Korean Art History Charlote Horlyck in a conversation mediated by Dr. Sook-Kyung-Lee, Lead Curator of Tate Research Centre: Asia. The talk will consider the social and political context affecting the emergence of Dansaekwha, paying particular attention to Park’s work and delving into the significance of the movement in the history of Korean art.
This event is part of the series ‘ARTTALK: Contemporary Korean Art Today’ programmed by the Korean Cultural Centre.
‘Park Seo-Bo: Ecriture 1967-1981’ continues at White Cube Mason’s Yard until 12 March 2016.
