3 Female Korean artists to open Kukje Gallery's fall season
Tue September 04, 2012 by Kyung Jeon | 0 Comments
This is a very exciting month celebrating women. From Mrs. Lee, the founder of Kukje Gallery, celebrating its 30th year to Mrs. Lee choosing 3 female korean artists to open the fall season: Kimsooja, Eemyun Kang & me (Kyung Jeon). This is all happening during the time where everybody is excited about the Roundtable and the 6 female curators at the Gwangju Biennale. This celebration of women is also present in my new Waterlilies series.

I will be heading down to the Gwangju Biennale opening on Thursday. Looking forward to seeing the all the great artwork.

KIAF Art Fair and Gangnam Style in Seoul
Thu September 13, 2012 by Kyung Jeon | 0 Comments
My trip to Korea would not be complete without going to an art fair and going Gangnam style. So today I saw some nice work at the KIAF Art Fair at the Coex. Some highights were Michael Joo & Kimsooja who I was lucky to meet a few nights ago at Kukje Gallery's parties. Also saw an older work by Aya Takano from 2008.

Could not leave Korea without first visiting Gangnam. It's just south of the river that splits Seoul. I went to a very posh market and saw very strange yellow mushrooms, and a $750 bottle of 100 year old SOY SAUCE! Who knew there was such a thing...gangnam style!
