Established in 2014 by Susan Baik and presented across its spaces in Los Angeles and Seoul, Baik Art displays an international roster of artists with works that mainly focus on individual hybridity, globalisation, and cultural diaspora. Reflective of this global outlook, the gallery has also established a nomadic residency program that nurtures the sharing of ideas and visual language between art world collaborators, with its many iterations taking place in cities such as Seoul, Jogja, Mexico City and Los Angeles.Read More
With a broad, multi-national programme, the gallery represents an international roster of 14 artists. Included are international names such as Ahmad Zakii Anwar, Park Chel Ho, Kenny Scharf, Jane Brucker, Lies Kraal, Heri Dono, Carol Kaufman, and the late Han Youngsoo. Baik Art also represents emerging artists such as Jonathan Casella, Park Kyung Ryul, Jinju Lee and Eddy Susanto.
Artist talks and other conversational opportunities are regularly hosted by the gallery. The gallery also collaborates on exhibitions with other venues in Los Angeles and overseas. Of particular note is the Baik Art Mural Project, run collaboratively with the 18th Street Arts Center, which offers Los Angeles artists of varied disciplines one year’s free reign to produce art directly on the gallery’s exterior walls.
With a strong presence in Asia as well as Los Angeles, Baik Art participates in major art fairs in Asia such as Art Busan and Art Jakarta.
