4482 showcases work by twenty new Korean artists who have studied, worked or lived in London. The exhibition title comes from the national telephone codes of the UK and South Korea.
Unlike the former generation of Korean artists who had experienced the upheaval of social, political and cultural changes through the 60s to the 90s, young artists today have grown up with great optimism for their country, celebrating high technology and a huge wave of globalisation. Full of creative energy and unique sensibility, these artists are more concerned with exploring perceptions of society, culture and identity through experimental and varying media.
This exhibition introduces works by twenty new artists who have studied at prestigious London art colleges including the Royal College of Art, Goldsmiths University of London, Chelsea College of Art & Design, and the Slade School of Fine Art.
