The Korean Cultural Service New York & the Korean Cultural Centre UK present NyLon: London–New York Exchange Exhibition.
This collaboration features 4 contemporary artists based in New York and London: Buhm HONG, Jean SHIN, Meekyoung SHIN and Je BAAK.
From November 16, 2011 to December 16, 2011 the exhibition NyLon: New York - London Exchange Exhibitionbrings together four Korean artists based in New York and London. As it marks our first exchange exhibition with the Korean Cultural Centre UK, NyLon attempts to pave a new way for these two institutions to promote Korean artists on the global art scene.
Our four exciting artists Buhm HONG, Jean SHIN, Meekyoung SHIN and Je BAAK explore a range of cross-cultural influences through their work, inspired by their lives in two of the world’s leading cultural capitals. The works of four artists present multi-faceted and diverse interests and aspects of contemporary art produced in the two cities, sometimes in parallel and at other times crossing paths.
