Yun Hyong-keun - National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, South Korea
This exhibition will offer the public its first-ever glimpse at numerous works of art and archival materials from one of the leading Korean monochrome painters Yun Hyong-keun (1928–2007), that have remained unseen since the artist’s death.

This retrospective was designed to provide a proper understanding of Yun Hyong-keun’s work as an artist who gained his first recognition in Japan, the U.S., and France but has never received his due in Korea. On view for the first time, the numerous archival materials and works provided by his family will offer an opportunity to view Yun’s relationship with older artist Kim Whanki and his profound understanding of Korean traditions.
