CMay Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by Seoul-based artist Lim Ok Sang. This is the artist’s solo debut in Los Angeles and his first exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition will run from October 5 to November 9, 2017 with the opening reception held on Thursday, October 5, 2017 from 5:30-9:30pm at CMay Gallery’s Pacific Design Center location.

 

One of the leading artists of the Minjung art movement, Lim has critically engaged “the people” in his work. Minjung – translated as “common people” or “the masses” – movement emerged in the 1980s in correspondence with protests against military rule in South Korea in the 1980s. Aiming to fill the gap between Art and the general public, Lim renounced styles derivative of Western models and practices of the 1960-70s and used folklore traditions to bring art to “the people.” The political situation has changed since the 1980s, however Lim continues to produce work that engages folklore, the people, and politics of the current time.

 

As the most prominent key figure in political resistance, Lim still actively participates in protests and rallies and continues to stay culturally relevant in the on-going public dialogue of South Korea's political landscape and beyond.
