Press release

Kukje Art and Culture Foundation with the support of La Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, Venice; Kukje Gallery, Seoul; Tina Kim Gallery, New York; Almine Rech and Blum & Poe are pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by Ha Chong-Hyun, on view at Palazzetto Tito (Istituzione Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa) as Collateral Event of the Biennale Arte 2022 from April 23.

The retrospective will feature a curated selection of more than twenty of Ha’s works from the past six decades, presenting the full breadth of his materials, methods, and creative experimentation. Sunjung Kim, the exhibition curator and Artistic Director of Art Sonje Center, shared:

“Having lived through Korea’s turbulent modern history that encompasses the Korean War and the division of the peninsula, the postwar economic development policy, and the military regime–all within a period marked by Japanese Occupation, Liberation, and the Cold War, Ha is living proof that art and society are inseparable.”
