“Lee Seung Jio: Nucleus” at Tina Kim Gallery
Though Lee Seung Jio was once deemed “a future giant of Korean painting,” many Western audiences still aren’t familiar with his work. His first-ever solo show at Tina Kim in New York is a great chance to get acquainted. The artist, who died in 1990, was best known for his geometric abstractions, often returning to a series of cylindrical pipe shapes that create an optical illusion the longer you stare at them.
Location: Tina Kim Gallery, 525 West 21st Street
Time: Opening reception, 6 p.m.–8 p.m.; Tuesday–Saturday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
