Two Friends: Tchah Sup Kim and Cho Yong-ik

September 22 – October 19, 2023

For Asia Week Autumn 2023, we are proud to present the work of two Korean artists, Tchah Sup Kim and Cho Yong-ik, who were friends for many years and sadly passed away in the last year. In the 1960s, Korea and Korean artists entered a new era. After decades of political and economic turbulence, South Korea found itself a member of an interconnected international landscape, and artists were inundated with new ideas. Western influences made their marks on Korean canvases, while Asian and particularly Korean modernisms developed rapidly. It was in these circumstances that Kim and Cho began their artistic careers, and formed a friendship that lasted the rest of their lives.
