Chung Sang-Hwa: Excavations, 1964–78

Chung Sang-Hwa: Excavations, 1964–78 is an exhibition of paintings from a formative era of Chung’s five-decades-long career. Presented at Lévy Gorvy’s space in Mayfair, Excavations will include works from a crucial period in which the Korean master was immersed in the international avant-garde milieus of both Asia and Europe. The paintings on view will illuminate the conceptual and technical trajectories that led Chung to the profoundly original, finely honed approach that defines the art of his mid- and late career. By highlighting the eclectic transnational influences in which Chung was immersed throughout the 1960s and ’70s, the exhibition provides rare insight into the progression of his practice, in order to galvanise discourse surrounding Chung’s singular approach to the medium. Travelling from Lévy Gorvy’s space in New York, Chung Sang-Hwa: Excavations, 1964–78 is organised in collaboration with Gallery Hyundai.
