"From All Sides: Tansaekhwa on Abstraction" featured Korean artists who, in the 1960s through the 1980s, created paintings that avoided the medium's traditional form—by dripping, scraping, tearing and scribbling on paper or canvas. The show brought together six prominent practitioners of this movement, dubbed tansaekhwa ("monochrome painting" in Korean): Lee Ufan, Ha Chonghyun, Kwon Young-woo, Park Seobo, Yun Hyongkeun and Chung Sang-hwa.
