The Studio of Artist: KIM Whanki’s New York Studio” invites us to the studio of the artist KIM Whanki in New York. “The Studio of Artist” is a space that accumulates the artist’s daily efforts and hard work. From the artist’s creative process, where he devoted himself to various experiments with the mind of a dedicated practitioner, to the moments of his artistic struggles and passions that he shared with his friends all-night for discussions, “The Studio of Artist ” engraves the story of “Artist, KIM Whanki,” to share with everyone.

Museum Guide II.

The Studio of Artist

KIM Whanki’s New York Studio

The exhibition presents a sensory journey of one artist’s pursuit of his artistic world through two reinterpretations: “Paintings” that reinterprets the artist’s creative process as “sound,” and “Conversations” that reinterprets the atmosphere of late-night art discussions as “scent.” Beyond visual appreciation of the works, “The Studio of Artist ” proposes a barrier-free exhibition that integrates sensory experiences such as hearing, smell, and touch, lowering the exhibition barriers for socially disadvantaged groups such as the disabled, the elderly, and children.
