KOREAN EYE 2012

26 July - 23 September 2012



A unique platform to bring contemporary Korean art to a new international audience at the Saatchi Gallery to coincide with the Olympic Games.

The exhibition presents the largest survey of new Korean art to date, and highlights an exciting group of artists who have recently emerged on the global art scene, producing work that provides an arresting insight into the future of contemporary art in Korea.

Korean Eye 2012 will be the very first time this group of artists have shown their work together, demonstrating a very diverse range of influences including fluency with technology, incredible attention to design and detail, and more historic factors, such as western classical art and Korea's many years of occupation by foreign powers.
