Curated by Clara M Kim, Happy Together marks the inaugural exhibition of Tina Kim Gallery’s new 21st Street space and features work by Kim Beom, Kwan Sheung Chi, Lee Kit, Minouk Lim, Park Chan-Kyong, Pratchaya Phinthong, Ming Wong and Yang Zhenzhong.
Happy Together considers the diverse artistic practices coming out of Asia against the backdrop of global forecasts that prognosticate the 21st century as the “Asian century.” Through a discrete body of artist’s works, the exhibition attempts to demystify grand narratives and complicate the dynamics that shape everyday life, including the legacies of colonialism, the cold war, rampant industrialization and the more recent territory disputes, as well as the transformation of private-public space. Borrowing the title from Wong Kar Wai’s 1997 film, the exhibition takes an ironic turn to reveal the inherent precariousness and fragility that holds together a continent with no shared language, culture or religion.
