Guimi You: Neighborhood

    April 25-June 1, 2024

    Jessica Silverman is pleased to announce Guimi You’s “Neighborhood,” the Seoul-based artist’s first solo exhibition in San Francisco, on view from April 25 to June 1, 2024. The artist will present five oil paintings based on her memories of living in the Bay Area and inspired by the sensorial experiences of her ritualistic daily walks. You’s paintings capture an interplay of light, flora, and architecture in atmospheric images of intimate gardens and long horizons.

    Guimi You (b. 1985, Seoul, Korea) is in the permanent collections of the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Museum of Art, Seoul National University; Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami; Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; and X Museum, Beijing. In the past year, she has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Makeroom LA, group exhibitions at Lehmann Maupin (Seoul), X Museum (Beijing), and the NGV Triennial at the National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne). You received her MA in painting from the Royal College of Art, London in 2014, and holds a BFA and MFA in Korean Traditional Painting from Seoul National University, Korea in 2008 and 2011.
