On the occasion of the 58th edition of the Venice Art Biennale, a major retrospective of Korean artist Yun Hyong-keun (1928 – 2007) was presented at Palazzo Fortuny by the MMCA (National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea) and MUVE (Civic Museums of Venice). The exhibition was the first international retrospective show of the artist since his death in 2007 and followed a critically-acclaimed exhibition of his work at MMCA Seoul. The show was focused on Yun’s extraordinary life and work and presented 55 of Yun’s works that spaned his entire career. One of the highlights of the exhibition was a meticulous reproduction of Yun’s atelier which included outstanding works by other artists (Kim Whanki, Jeon Roe-jin and Choi Jongtae), which Yun had in his studio. While recognising his role in the development of Dansaekhwa, this retrospective aimed to examine Yun's work in its own right and from a new perspective.
To coincide with the exhibition, a printed catalogue; Yun Hyong-Keun was published by Hatje Cantz, available for purchase in English.
