Last weeks to view Park Seo-Bo’s large-scale retrospective, The Untiring Endeavorer, at @mmcakorea. • The exhibition surveys the artist’s life and artistic world, who has been a pioneering figure in Korean abstract art. • The show’s title refers to a career of over 70 years in painting as someone who has endeavored to use his Ecriture series to pursue the ultimate goal of art to heal the anguish and suffering of modern individuals. • On view through 1 September 2019 #ParkSeoBo #Koreanabstractart #Contemporaryart #ecriture
Animal Uproar: 200 Years of the Bremen Town Musicians in Art, Kitsch and Society is on view at the @kunsthalle.bremen museum through 1 September 2019. • According to the show’s curator, Jennifer Smailes, the animals represent a “social utopia,” showing that a strong collective reflects unity and resilience. • Pictured: Gimhongsok, The Bremen Town Musicians, 2006-2007.

From the TKG Collection: Kwon Young-Woo, Untitled, 1976. • Part of @cranbrookartmuseum’s current exhibition, Landlord Colors: On Art, Economy, and Materiality.

OPENS TODAY: @aichitriennale’s Taming Y/Our Passion 情の時代, featuring over 80 innovative contemporary artists, including #TKGartist Minouk Lim. • The artist will present a new scenographic space through her new body of work called Adieu News (2019), which includes a two-channel video of the newly edited The Possibility of the Half (2012), as well as an installation featuring colorful Korean traditional dresses, Hanbok. By juxtaposing two funerals of the former supreme leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-il, and that of the former president of South Korea, Park Chung-hee, Lim questions the inexplicable grief and paradox of the two communities. The newsroom format that bids farewell portrays society's current situation: an era of separation punctuated by the collective media stirring emotions now more than ever. • Taming Y/Our Passion will be on view through 14 October 2019. #TinaKimGallery #AICHITriennale2019 #Nayoga #ContemporaryKoreanart #Contemporaryart
Sneak peek | A partial view of Minouk Lim’s latest wall paintings for her participation in the upcoming @aichitriennale beginning 1 August 2019. • This year’s triennial, Taming Y/Our Passion, explores the middle ground of various oppositions to recapture the lost original domain of art. #MinoukLim #AICHITriennale #Contemporaryart #ContemporaryKoreanart #TKGartist
Artist @mishakahn — currently showcasing at the gallery's summer group show, For Mario — is part of @cultured_mag’s 2019 30 Under 35 list. • "If an object already looks melted, a little lumpy, a bit dowdy—maybe it’s more like you. I think [my objects] are slightly confused interlopers just hoping to find a bit of love,” Kahn states. • Head to the link in bio to read the full excerpt.

We will be celebrating the book's release this Friday, May 3rd from 6-8pm during our opening reception for Kim Yong-Ik's solo exhibition 'Speaking of Latter Genesis'. • Submerging the reader into the artist’s work development from the past until today, this publication also focuses on Kim's time in Paris with Cahiers d'Art in 2018, resulting in an exhibition featuring prints created at the renowned Idem print studio. The book includes texts by Beck Jee-Sook and Philippe Vergne, as well as extracts from a 2018 interview between Kim Yong-Ik and Hans Ulrich Obrist. • Please contact the gallery directly for purchasing enquiries. • #tinakimgallery #kimyongik #cahiersdart #idemstudio #staffanahrenberg #beckjeesook #philippevergne #hansulrichobrist
Tina Kim Gallery is pleased to present ’Speaking of Latter Genesis’, a solo exhibition of work by Kim Yong-Ik on view from 3 May until 15 June 2019. • For his exhibition at Tina Kim Gallery, the artist has created a site-specific installation that engages directly with the space. A series of dots line the room, moving off the canvas and directly onto the walls. By expanding his work beyond the painting surface and into the physical gallery space, the architecture becomes part of the work itself, demonstrating the artist’s refusal to be bound by the constraints of traditional artworks. • Opening Reception: Friday 3 May 2019, 6-8 PM • Photo: installation view of ‘Flatland’, Kumho Museum of Art, Seoul (2018) • #tinakimgallery #kimyongik
Today is the last day to see Davide Balliano's solo exhibition at the gallery. Visit us for a final look -- we will be open until 6 PM. • #tinakimgallery #davideballiano
Currently on display at the gallery, the paintings in Davide Balliano's exhibition continue his exploration of patterns reduced to their most basic contours. For the artist, this interest is exemplified in this use of different wave patterns. In these new works, he has successfully layered the dimensions of these forms setting them into motion. • Davide Balliano is on view until 13 April 2019 • Photo: Davide Balliano, UNTITLED_0138 (2019), plaster, gesso and varnish on wood, 36 x 48 inches (91.4 x 121.9 cm).

Installation view of Tina Kim Gallery/Kukje Gallery at TEFAF Maastricht • Visit us at booth 512 throughout the duration of the fair, which runs until March 24th. • #tinakimgallery #kukjegallery #tefafmaastricht #tefaf #artfair
Grounded in a philosophical discourse surrounding nature versus technology and time versus space, Davide Balliano’s work reflects on the interdependence of these forces relative to the human condition. In his newest compositions, the artist has begun to articulate a clearer background and foreground with even greater contrasting black and white compositions. By offering a greater sense of depth to his complex geometrical forms, the artist frames a visual dialectic suffused with the human experience. • On view until 13 April 2019 • Photo: Installation view of Davide Balliano, 2019.

Where the World is Made", opening Thursday, December 6th at the MAXXI in Rome. - On view until April 28, 2019, the exhibition puts forward various thematic engagements with the paradigm shifts of our time: the street as an extension of domestic life, as the principal location for urban expression and as an incubator for a renewed social structure: the street signifies meeting, sharing and discussion, but also innovation, a space in which our relationship with new technologies and with the speed of communication that they have imposed on the contemporary world emerges.
Art Basel Miami Beach kicks off this week, and we are pleased to present alongside @kukjegallery. Visit booth F6 for major paintings, installations, and video works by both Korean and international contemporary artists including Alexander Calder, Davide Balliano, Ha Chong-Hyun, Kim Yong-Ik, Lee Ufan and Bill Viola, among others.

Installation view of Incomplete Order Development, from the solo exhibition 'Dwarf, Dust, Doubt' by Gimhongsok. - In Gimhongsok’s Incomplete Order Development series, blocky concrete figures stand in various states of repose. Approximately 1 meter tall, each figure though roughly shaped, clearly embodies a small human making various communicative gestures. The series asks, rhetorically, when is an object completed? When does any project, including an artwork, reach its final stage? According to the artist, “The concept of completion has a beginning and end, with the decision to finish, marking its completion. But who decides when something is complete, and how?” - 'Dwarf, Dust, Doubt' by Gimhongsok is on display until 30 November 2018
Installation view of Untitled (Short People), from the solo exhibition 'Dwarf, Dust, Doubt' by Gimhongsok. - An extension of his MATERIAL (2012) and 8 breaths (2013) series, each work from Untitled (Short People) is comprised of blown up balloons that are cast in bronze. Varying in size, the artist enlists friends and acquaintances to blow up the balloons finding poetic resonance in the capture of human breath. Divided into groups of four and six balloons, the entire series represents a combined effort of more than one hundred people. - 'Dwarf, Dust, Doubt' is on display until 30 November 2018
Thank you to everyone who visited us for yesterday's opening. "Dwarf, Dust, Doubt" by Gimhongsok is on view until 30 November 2018. - Through the exhibition's title, Gimhongsok has highlighted how society casually assigns values to objects using terms to describe their size, weight and how we perceive them. In isolating these arbitrary values, he questions the political and social judgment implied by their use, rejecting the cavalier way people treat objects upon seeing them.
Tonight: Join us from 6–8 PM for the opening reception of Gimhongsok's solo exhibition "Dwarf, Dust, Doubt" - The exhibition is on display from 25 October until 30 November 2018
Tina Kim Gallery is pleased to present Dwarf, Dust, Doubt, a solo exhibition by Gimhongsok.

Tomorrow, September 30th, at 6 PM, Minouk Lim will perform her work O Tannenbaum at the @asakusa.o artspace in Tokyo. The performance traces the adaptation of the German folk song O Tannenbaum to the communist Red Flag Song, and how it became a vessel for otherwise conflicting ideologies. A rally performance will be assembled around Tokyo’s Imperial Palace, intended to unite the “ghosts” of discordant communities and temporalities. - For more information on this event, please visit asakusa-o.com.
Evoking literary genres ranging from Asian gothic to heavy metal, Citizen's Forest (2016) by Park Chan-Kyong chronicles major tragedies in the nation’s past. The work’s panoramic structure evokes traditional “shan-su” (landscape) scroll paintings. In Citizen’s Forest, viewers are invited to accompany this ragtag group as they walk slowly through the forest; mixing history and fiction, the actors play musical instruments and impersonate the dead as they mourn the loss of their fellow citizens. - The opening reception for Citizen's Forest by Park Chan-Kyong will take place on Thursday, September 13th, between 6 – 8 PM. - Photo: Park Chan-Kyong, Citizen's Forest, 2016, three channel black and white video (26 min 32 sec), directional sound, dimensions variable

'It’s this quirky re-envisionment of the anthropological that allows Gala Porras-Kim to frontline the often ridiculous (and defunct) nature of the ethnographic approach, where the question of legitimacy and documentation are inextricably tied' – @sleekmag - Our group show with Commonwealth and Council is on display until August 3rd, featuring artworks by @itsgala, among others. Read the most recent review of the show now on sleekmag.com
Not a Single Issue/No hay cuestión única (2017) by Carolina Caycedo (@lacaycedo) - Visit us all summer long for our group show organized in collaboration with @commonwealthandcouncil, on view until August 3rd.
Many thanks to @frieze_magazine for their wonderful feature on @sukiskang. "Kang’s jeong, thrum with music – linking the artist’s favourite formal device to intimate parts of her own body and personal history. There is a utopian aspect to this form, which delineates personal space while allowing dancers and musicians to perform in unison. In jeongganbo, Kang seems to say, we might find a way to preserve our individuality and work better together." - Head over to frieze.com now to read about the artist's practice just in time for her activations this weekend at the @liverpoolbiennial. - Photo: By Constanse Mensh, courtesy of the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Philadelphia.
