Phillips, in collaboration with The Artist Room, is pleased to announce New Romantics, an exhibition of works which highlight the new spirit of Romanticism that is being revived by certain emerging and mid-career artists from the United Kingdom and beyond. Showcasing works by 23 artists, this presentation at Lee Eugean Gallery in Seoul’s Gangnam district from 31 August to 6 September will coincide with the debut of Frieze Seoul, and the city’s flagship art fairs Kiaf SEOUL & Kiaf PLUS. The works featured in this exhibition will be on sale in Hong Kong from 19 September to 21 October 2022.
Romanticism was an artistic, literary, musical, and intellectual movement that originated in the 18th century. It looked to break away from the ideas and traditions of the past, focusing on the imagination, a return to nature, and emphasising the importance of individual artistic expression. In this vein, New Romantics brings together a genre-defining group of contemporary artists who offer us original dreams and visions, highlighting painting’s continued capacity for escapism. All of the works presented explore the complexities of today’s world and highlight art’s capacity to transcend the everyday, channel intuition and freedom, and render visible transfixing portals for escapism and fantasy.
