Soluna Fine Art is delighted to host a panel discussion that focuses on art and technology in the twenty-first century. With the gallery’s current exhibition of Kim Young-Hun’s Electronic Nostalgia Series, we aim to not only promote the significance of the artist’s artworks but decipher the complex interrelationships between art and technology. The discussion will be led by Dr. Alvaro Cassinelli, Associate Professor at City University Hong Kong’s School of Creative Media, and Professor Tam Wai Ping Lukas, Associate Professor at The Chinese University Hong Kong’s Department of Fine Art. The panel will introduce the intertwinement between art and technology and discuss Kim Young-Hun’s paintings and the relation to art and technology.
About the Artist
Kim Young-Hun was born in 1964, in Nonsan, Korea. He is currently based in New York City and Seoul. Kim received his B.F.A. (1992) in painting from Hongik University. Continuing his studies, he soon enrolled at Chelsea College of Art and Design and received his M.F.A (2008). Kim has exhibited extensively internationally with over 10 solo and 60 group exhibitions. His paintings are in several prestigious public and corporate collections, including Bank of America (New York), and The Arts Club (London), and in numerous museums. Kim’s ability to depict the paint as if it was melting and fusing together onto the canvas is due to the use of the traditional Korean painting technique called Hyukpil (革筆畫), in which the painter mixes various colors and paints with rapid strokes using a leather brush.
Due to the current situation in Hong Kong and the government’s suggestion to practice social distancing, this panel discussion will be live-streamed on our Youtube channel on 13 May 2020.
