at The Guggenheim Museum (1071 Fifth Avenue, New York City)
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum presents Lee Ufan: Marking Infinity, the first North American museum retrospective devoted to the artist-philosopher Lee Ufan (surname: Lee, given name: Ufan), a preeminent sculptor, painter, and writer active in Korea, Japan, and Europe over the last forty years. The exhibition positions Lee as a historical figure and contemporary master, charting the artist’s creation of a visual, conceptual, and theoretical language that has radically expanded the possibilities for Post-Minimalist art. His deliberately limited and distilled gestures, guided by an ethics of restraint, produce emptiness that is generative and vivid; it is this sense of infinitude that forms the material and substance of his art.
