Gwangju Biennale and Kukje Gallery in Korea
August 05, 2012 by Kyung Jeon

This year art lovers will have the opportunity to appreciate amazing work from various international artists. Every two years, South Korea is host to the 2012 Gwangju Biennale starting this September in Gwangju, Korea. If you will be flying there on your next trip, be sure to visit some of the art galleries exhibiting the newest work from artists today. Kukje Gallery will be presenting new work from Kimsooja to coincide with her participation in the Gwangju Biennale. My show will open on August 23, 2012 at Kukje Gallery's K1 space, just one week before the Gwangju Biennale. I will be showing my latest body of work, which will be on display through most of September so be sure to visit Kukje Gallery to get a look at my newest collection, created here in New York City and on exhibit only in South Korea.
