Art Projects International is pleased to announce that Gallery Hyundai in Seoul, Korea, will present IL LEE and The Line of Duration, a major solo exhibition of works by Il Lee from June 19 - July 15, 2012. The exhibition is the inaugural collaboration between Art Projects International and Gallery Hyundai and marks the artist's first solo exhibition in Korea in 16 years. This homecoming exhibition is the largest showing of Lee's work in Korea and will feature his signature works --  large-scale ballpoint works on canvas and on paper -- along with his new oil on canvas works, and will be presented at Gallery Hyundai's building in Sagan-dong, Seoul.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue with an essay by Raphael Rubinstein.
Il Lee is best known for his pioneering work with ballpoint that he began over 30 years ago and continues today. His work was the subject of a critically acclaimed, mid-career retrospective at the San Jose Museum of Art (2007) and solo exhibitions at the Queens Museum of Art (2007), the Vilcek Foundation in New York (2008), and the Crow Collection of Asian Art in Dallas (2010).  Il Lee's works have been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Artthe Brooklyn Museum, the Smithsonian Museum of Art and the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea.
