On October 20, 2007, Young Kim was joined by Deanne Cheuk, José Parlá, Rey Parlá, Rostarr and Davi Russo for thirteen days of travel in the Far East. They began in Shanghai heading for the remote Yunnan Province, in search of the mystical city of Shangri la.

With James Hilton’s novel, Lost Horizon as their guide, their journey took them through the beautiful valleys, rivers and lakes between the border of Yunnan Province and Tibet, through the Mei Li Snow Mountains ,and eventually to Beijing. While on this journey, each artist created new works within their respective medium, inspired by the places they visited during their travels. This wide-ranging body of work, now showcased in The New Grand Tour exhibition opens on June 3rd at the Bryce Wolkowitz gallery in New York, on view between June 4 and 17.
