Galerie Perrotin, New York presents the second exhibition dedicated to Korean artist Park Seo-Bo, following his first solo show at Galerie Perrotin, Paris last November. Born in 1931, Park Seo-Bo is a seminal figure in Korean contemporary art and one of the founding members of the Dansaekhwa monochrome movement, a synthesis between traditional Korean spirit and Western abstraction, which emerged in the early 1970s in post-war Korea and has gained international recognition since. An official collateral event in this year’s 56th Venice Biennial, “Dansaekhwa”, is currently held at the Palazzo Contarini-Polignac (until August 15) and on the occasion of the Year of Korea in France (2015-2016), a major exhibition dedicated to Korean artists in France – including Park Seo-Bo, will take place at the Cernuschi Museum in Paris: ‘From Lee Ungno to Lee Ufan: Korean Artists in France’
