KCCUK 2017 ARTIST OF THE YEAR: KIM YONG-IK, WITH SPIKE ISLAND
Sep 26 - Nov 4, 2017
Private view Mon Sep 25 6pm - 9pm
Spike Island, Bristol and the Korean Cultural Centre UK, London announce two exhibitions from Korean artist Kim Yong-Ik (b. 1947), marking his first solo presentation in Europe. Kim’s 40 year career as an artist, activist and teacher - spanning a turbulent struggle from dictatorship to democracy in South Korea - has had a profound impact on the country’s modern art history, influencing many younger artists. The exhibition at Spike Island surveys an array of works from the 1970s onwards, whilst KCCUK focuses on Kim’s paintings from the 1980s and 1990s. Part of the Korea/UK Season, a programme of extensive cultural events across the UK celebrating Korean creatives, these exhibitions provide a timely insight into Kim’s influential oeuvre.
