UPDATED: Artist-led Walkthrough: Alex Paik on Only the Young: Experimental Art in Korea, 1960s–1970s

  • This is a past program

Join artist Alex Paik for a tour of Only the Young: Experimental Art in Korea, 1960s-1970s.

This tour was originally planned to be led by artist Yong Soon Min, who sadly passed away on March 12. Min was a pioneering Korean American artist and co-founder the Los Angeles-based organization GYOPO. Paik, who serves on GYOPO’s Steering Committee, has graciously stepped in to lead this tour in honor of Yong Soon Min.


Alex Paik is an artist, community builder, curator, and writer based in Los Angeles. His modular, paper-based wall installations explore the adaptability, impermanence and interdependence of forms, color, and structures. He has exhibited in the U.S. and internationally, with notable solo projects at Praxis New York, Art on Paper 2016, and Gallery Joe. His work has also been featured in group exhibitions at BravinLee Projects, Ruschman Gallery, and MONO Practice, among others.

Paik is Founder and Director of Tiger Strikes Asteroid, a non-profit network of artist-run spaces and serves on the Steering Committee at GYOPO, a collective of diasporic Korean cultural producers and arts professionals.
