Date: 25/10/2011 ~ 26/112011

This collaboration features 4 contemporary artists based in London and New York: Je BAAK, Meekyoung SHIN, Buhm HONG and Jean SHIN.
From 25 October 2011 to 26 November 2011 the exhibition NyLon: London-New York Exchange Exhibition brings together four Korean artists based in London and New York. As it marks our first exchange exhibition with the Korean Cultural Service New York, NyLon attempts to pave a new way for these two institutions to promote Korean artists on the global art scene.

Our four exciting artists Meekyoung SHIN, Je BAAK, Buhm HONG and Jean SHIN explore a range of cross-cultural influences through their work, inspired by their lives in two of the world’s leading cultural capitals. The works of four artists present multi-faceted and diverse interests and aspects of contemporary art produced in the two cities, sometimes in parallel and at other times crossing paths.
Four artists were selected by the local advisory panels, consisted of Ralph Rugoff, the Director of the Hayward Gallery and Dr. Sook-Kyung Lee, the first Korean curator at the Tate. The works of these artists will also be exhibited at the Korean Cultural Service New York, from 16 November 2011 to 16 December 2011.
