Dansaekhwa and Minimalism, which opened January 16 at Blum & Poe in Los Angeles, is the latest in a series of exhibitions and publications devoted to the Korean monochrome painting movement sweeping the globe of late. While Dansaekhwa (also spelled “Tansaekhwa”) emerged somewhat concurrently with American Minimalism, this is the first exhibition to consider the two movements side by side, finding subtle synchronicities between the artists’ approaches to form, material, and medium.

The artists associated with Dansaekhwa have enjoyed rising prominence in the art world, and increasing popularity among collectors, in the past few years. If one hadn’t heard of Dansaekhwa prior to 2014, it has been hard to escape since: with high visibility at recent editions of Frieze and Art Basel; a special collateral exhibition at the 2015 Venice Biennale, and with it a comprehensive book about the movement being published in English for the first time.
