The Hill Art Foundation is honored to present the first career survey of Minjung Kim, whose work merges the traditions of Korean watercolor painting and calligraphy with concepts of minimalism and abstraction.

The exhibition is a close collaboration between the artist and curatorial advisor Boon Hui Tan, the Director of the Asia Society Museum and the Asia Society’s Vice President for Global Artistic Programs. The exhibition has been structured to include 37 paintings drawn from series across the artist’s career, showcasing the astonishing range of Kim’s exploration of the interaction between ink and paper.
