Tiger, Journey, Love: Kensington + Chelsea Festival
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
Throughout Tiger Is Coming, our festival of contemporary Korean arts, world renowned installation artist Choi Jeong Hwa takes over The Coronet Theatre with Tiger, Journey, Love – a major exhibition of his work, using our historic home in a way you’ve never seen before.
Choi Jeong Hwa’s work is hard to resist. Dealing with mass production, materialism and consumption culture, he uses ordinary day-to-day objects found in Korea to explore how art can be encountered in everyday life. His lively, colourful, large-scale, inflatable pieces will cover the facade of the building offering a riotous explosion of colour. Experience his visionary art up close and personal within our unique Victorian theatre as an extensive collective of his works are exhibited throughout the building.
Ahead of the official opening of the interior exhibition we are thrilled to open exclusively for the Kensington + Chelsea Festival on the 31st of August for two free special guided tours at 2pm and 3:15pm.
