The Korea Society will be presenting an exhibition of the writings of celebrated artist, poet, and philosopher Lee UFan. This will be in conjunction with the Guggenheim Museum's retrospective exhibition, Lee UFan: Marking Infinity, which runs June 24-September 28, 2011.
Born in Korea in 1936, Lee has been an artistic and intellectual force in Korea, Japan, and Europe for more than four decades, articulating a unique aesthetic and philosophical stance grounded in modernity critique and Post-Minimalist practice. Lee, the author of seventeen books, has written seminal essays on contemporary art, Asian culture, and democracy that offer a powerful voice to our current cultural discourse.
The Korea Society’s summer exhibition will present photographs and work with Lee’s poetry, criticism, and essays.
