Lee Bae’s dedication to presence requires our own, offering a moment of respite and contemplation
In this presentation, curator Cheryl Sim will introduce the work of Lee Bae and will discuss his upcoming exhibition at the Foundation titled UNION. For nearly thirty years, Lee Bae has engaged with the formal and conceptual properties of charcoal as an extension of memory. He creates paintings, sculpture, and installation that elicit the luminous, corporeal and contemplative qualities of this matière.
The presentation will be followed by an open Q&A session with the public. This event will be also be streamed live on YouTube and our home page.
To take part in this event, you must have Zoom (zoom.us) installed on your computer or smartphone.
The presentation will be in French.
