IN-HYUNG KIM: The Paris Years

Là, tout n’est qu’ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté.

Art Projects International is pleased to announce In-Hyung Kim: The Paris Years from January 28 to February 27, 2016. The exhibition features selected works from the artist’s years in Paris and includes paintings and works on paper. In-Hyung Kim moved to Paris in 1978 at the age of 20. She graduated from L’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts and lived and worked in Paris as an artist for nearly 30 years before returning to Seoul, where she now lives and works.

The paintings in The Paris Years range from boldly and sensitively rendered, expressionistic, multi-media works on paper to more atmospheric works on canvas. The paintings on canvas read as nocturnes, with floral elements appearing out of darknesses red, black or green. The works suggest the melancholic romanticism of Baudelaire but introduce an aesthetic wholly derived from In-Hyung Kim’s uncompromising sensibility. Her carefully cultivated personal aesthetic and gifts for painting are readily apparent; in Untitled #27 of 1994, a freely brushed, scumbled, white, tree-like form could be a baobab in space or the last mushroom cloud. From afar, an untitled work of 2000 appears as slashes of orange crimson against black—up close it is a gorgeous representation of untethered blooms in a night garden.

On August 13th, the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) presents the panel Curating Pacific Spaces: Recent Developments in Contemporary Art from the South Pacific. New Zealand is home to one of the largest populations of Pacific people in the world, however Indigenous Pacific artists and curators have, until recently, rarely been featured in the art history of this nation. Today a new generation of indigenous artists endeavor to have their contribution to the contemporary art scene of the South Pacific fully recognized.

 

Curators of contemporary Maori and Pacific Islander art, Reuben Friend and Shelley Jahnke, will present their findings on recent developments in contemporary Pacific Art, from trends in the private gallery scene to the latest generation of emerging millennial artists. Reuben Friend’s findings highlight the types of contemporary Pacific Art currently being exhibited in public galleries in New Zealand and how these works translate to an international audience. Shelley Jahnke’s research examines the dynamics of selling and positioning contemporary Māori and Pacific Art within New Zealand and international markets.

 

Reuben Friend is an artist and curator of Māori and Pākehā lineage. From 2009-2013, he worked as the Curator of Māori and Pacific Arts at City Gallery and recently relocated to Brisbane where he works as the Exhibition Manager at Logan Art Gallery while developing contemporary Pacific art projects on a freelance basis.

 

Shelley Jahnke is a Māori curator with experience working within public and commercial galleries in New Zealand. Prior to taking up the role of curator, at Te Manawa Art Gallery, Palmerston North, she worked exclusively for an Asian-based private international art collector and contributed to the curation and project management of the international touring show Roundabout. This ambitious three year project debuted at the City Gallery, Wellington in late 2010 and later the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 2012.

 

The presentation will be facilitated by ISCP artist-in-residence Shigeyuki Kihara.
