Acclaimed Documentarian and Author to Collaborate at Oldest US Art Exhibition
Acclaimed documentary filmmaker IM Heung-soon
and internationally renowned novelist HAN Kang
are set to collaborate on a project, after being invited to participate at the 2018 Carnegie International, the long-running contemporary art exhibition in North America.
While details of the work are not yet forthcoming, representatives for IM have relayed that the jointly produced piece will incorporate elements of modern Korean history. The collaboration was proposed to the artists by Carnegie International.
HAN is a Korean novelist who has drawn broad acclaim for her work at home. Her 2007 novel ‘Vegetarian’ earned the Man Booker International Prize in 2016 following the release of an English translation. Her other works available in English include ‘Convalescence’, ‘Human Acts’ and ‘The White Book’.
The Carnegie International was first staged by Andrew Carnegie in 1896 at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh. This year’s 57th edition will launch on October 13.
