About

The PHI Foundation for Contemporary Art presents a conversation between Lee Bae and Cheryl Sim. In this conversation, Lee Bae discusses his exhibition UNION, on view until June 20.

For nearly thirty years, Lee Bae has engaged with the formal and conceptual properties of charcoal to create paintings, drawing, sculpture, and installation. This major solo exhibition, his first in Canada, features more than 40 recent works that employ a range of approaches. The exhibition also features a large-scale installation that calls attention to the corporeality of his work and its ability to connect us to a soulful place. Lee Bae’s dedication to presence requires our own, offering a moment of respite and contemplation.

This talk will be in French.
