PKM Gallery is pleased to participate in Art Basel Hong Kong, taking place at Hong Kong Convention & Convention Centre from March 29th to 31st, 2018. For this year, PKM Gallery’s booth will comprise powerful works by both Korean and international masters and artists of younger generation.
Yun Hyong-keun, known to be one of the most celebrated, internationally established first generation Dansaekhwa artists in the global art market, whose retrospective show is scheduled to be held at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul in August 2018, PKM Gallery’s booth will present a careful selection of Yun’s works from the 1990s. The gallery booth will also feature newly produced data base painting and lighting sculpture by Cody Choi, the representative artist of the Korean Pavilion at the Venice Biennale last year, who has received great response from both the local and Western media with his presentation at the Biennale. Kwang Young Chun, acknowledged for presenting his artistic creativity and talent with his unique sculptures made out of Korean mulberry paper, his new Aggregation series will also be showcased at the gallery’s booth. The artist’s major solo exhibition is scheduled to be held at PKM Gallery from April 6th, 2018.

Wonwoo Lee, who draws inspiration from fragments of everyday life and turn the subject into his own refreshingly humorous work of art, will also be presenting his unique small-sized sculptures. Another Korean artist, Kim Hong Shik will showcase her new paintings that capture the moments of Westerners viewing the relics of ancient Korea inside the national museums in Korea. The gallery’s booth will also feature new large-scaled paintings by the British artist Toby Ziegler, as well as Brent Wadden’s tapestry paintings that have been showcased in Asia for the first time through his solo exhibition at PKM Gallery last year.
