Event Details:

Hosted by the Department of Art & Art History, sponsored by Stanford Arts and the Center for East Asian Studies at Stanford University. 

Please join us for a very special lecture by legendary Korean artist Lee Ufan.  

Lee Ufan (b. 1936, Kyongsang-namdo, South Korea) emerged as one of the leading figures of the Japanese avant-garde group Mono-ha, in the late 1960s. Emphasizing the relationships between space, perception, and object, his works develop from an appreciation of nature and the inherent qualities of his materials. Here, the action of repetitive minimal marks denotes an association between the body and temporality. Combining artistic practice with philosophical writing, Lee’s oeuvre is characterized by thoughtful and direct iterations of gestures, engaging the viewer in contemplation of abstract forms and vivid restraint, manifesting in sculpture, paintings, and works on paper.

This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP here.
