Yingmei Duan and Aisha Abid Hussain at London Art Fair 2018
Art Projects returns to London Art Fair (17-21 January) to present a curated showcase of work by contemporary artists. Part of Art Projects, ‘Dialogues’ introduces collaborations between international galleries, and this year will feature exclusively female or female-identifying artists whose work addresses themes of gender and cultural identity. Yingmei Duan, a participating artist, trained with Marina Abramovic and uses her body as an expressive medium; her project Talk Together with Pakistani artist Aisha Abid Hussain is showcased by Hanmi Gallery. Hanmi Gallery London is dedicated to promoting contemporary Korean and East Asian art to local and international audiences. With a second gallery space in Seoul featuring the works of British and European artists, it aims to foster a cross-cultural dialogue between Eastern and Western contemporary art. Since opening in London in 2011, the gallery has focused on new media and interdisciplinary artistic practices; it represents emerging and established video, performance and new media artists, supporting their development and enhancing their visibility in present-day visual culture.
