California: Hun Chung Lee

April 28 - August 11, 2022

64 White Street



Hun Chung Lee (b. 1967) is widely recognized for his mastery of 15th century Korean celadon glazing techniques, which he uses to create stunning ceramic works that embrace and blend the formal vocabularies of sculpture and functional design. On April 28, R & Company will open Lee’s first exhibition in New York City in ten years, reintroducing his distinct and poetic work to East Coast visitors, capturing the evolution of his practice. With works produced entirely in Lee’s recently opened Santa Monica studio, the exhibition features objects made in his “classic style”, as well as those that represent his most recent experimentations with monumental scale and engagement with California-inspired color palettes. While Lee’s practice is highly acclaimed in Asia, the forthcoming exhibition, titled California: Hun Chung Lee, offers an opportunity to increase awareness of his work and inspire equal admiration among audiences in the United States. California: Hun Chung Lee will remain on view at R & Company’s 64 White Street location through August 12, 2022.
