Arario Korea’s exhibition in The Korea Herald

Posted in Arario Cheonan, Arario Seoul by arariogallery on November 17, 2009

Arario Gallery is showcasing its collections under the title “Arario’s Finest” to commemorate its 20th anniversary.

The show is notable because the gallery’s collections are in fact those of Kim Chang-il, president of the Gallery, who is considered one of the world’s top 100 collectors.

Kim was the first Korean ever to make the list of the world’s 100 most powerful collectors, as selected by British magazine Art Review. He is also an artist himself who goes by the name “Ci Kim,” although his work is not as well known as his collections.

This show stages about 35 pieces from Kim’s collections by world-renowned artists like Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Keith Haring, Marc Quinn, Neo Rauch and Tracey Emin.
