This Year’s Frieze International Air Fair and Seoul Art Week
SEOUL, Sep. 6, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) is stepping into the spotlight as the official headline partner of Frieze Seoul 2023 (September 6-9). The company will be showcasing special art collaborations that reaffirm its dedication to highlighting the intrinsic link between art and technology as a part of its ongoing LG OLED ART project. For this year’s edition of Frieze Seoul, LG is partnering with the Whanki Foundation to present “We Meet Again in Seoul,” a curated selection of paintings by master of Korean abstract art, Kim Whanki.
The stunning exhibition features twelve original artworks by Whanki, including some of his most iconic pieces. Among these are Where, in What Form, Shall We Meet Again and 25-III-69 #46, created during his noted New York periods – both paintings exemplifying the artist’s unique “all-over dot” style. These works will be on display in the LG OLED Lounge at Frieze Seoul 2023, where they will be brought to life by the immaculate digital canvas that is LG OLED. The incredible colors and clarity of LG’s self-lit OLED technology faithfully preserve Whanki’s creative intentions while revealing detail and nuance that add an extra dimension to his acclaimed art.
Audiences will find themselves completely immersed in and inspired by this exclusive presentation; the combination of Whanki’s artistic genius and the digital artistry of LG OLED combining to elicit profound emotions and deep contemplation.
Additionally, visitors to the LG OLED Lounge will have the opportunity to explore exciting, new perspectives on the distinctive and thought-provoking art of Whanki. Je Baak, professor at Seoul National University College of Fine Arts, Mano Ahn, CEO of Ahn Graphics and Kim Dae-hwan, CEO of BESIGN, have joined forces to digitally express five of Whanki’s artworks, using LG OLED as their canvas.
“LG OLED is honored to present the work of the renowned Kim Whanki to a global audience at this year’s Frieze Seoul,” said Kate Hye-won Oh, vice president of the Brand Communication Division at LG Home Entertainment Company. “Both the stunning originals and the brave digital reinterpretations of Whanki’s paintings inspire the imagination and encourage all of us, whether artist or art enthusiast, to explore the limitless possibilities of art. The ultimate digital canvas, LG OLED continues to shine a light on the majesty of human creative endeavor, and what can be achieved when art and technology come together as one.”
Beyond its participation in Frieze Seoul 2023, LG OLED will be actively contributing to the artistic ambiance of the South Korean capital throughout the month of September. At Seoul Light DDP 2023 (August 31 to September 10), LG’s premium TV brand is presenting BOREALIS, an illuminating and ever-changing work of light and color by technologist and new media artist Dan Acher, which can be experienced daily between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. The collaboration is a testament to LG OLED’s continuing support for Seoul Art Week (taking place this year from September 1-10) and to its commitment to promoting the practice and appreciation of new forms of digital art.
LG OLED has also teamed up with Artist Company, a Seoul-based entertainment company founded by celebrated Korean actor, Lee Jung-jae, to expose a wider audience to the best of digital art. From September 7-24, the first floor of the Artist’s Company’s building in Cheongdam will play host to several inspirational works, including digitalized Whanki pieces and art from Six N. Five, previously showcased by LG OLED at Frieze New York in May.
LG continues to deliver enriching art world experiences, illustrating the close connection between art and technology through inspiring exhibitions and innovative artist collaborations.

Delivering the First Commercial Implementation of HCA Specification 1.0,
Company Expands Smart Home Ecosystem Through Partnerships With Other Brands
SEOUL, Aug. 29, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) is set to present the first commercial implementation of the Home Connectivity Alliance’s HCA Specification 1.0, enabling cross-brand appliance connectivity through the LG ThinQ smart home platform. By the end of this year, consumers will be able to control appliances from diverse brands, such as Samsung and Vestel, with the intuitive-to-use ThinQ app, providing seamless interconnectivity and a smarter, more convenient home.
With a firm commitment to customer experience innovation, LG has joined with other brands to bring the elegant simplicity of cross-brand compatibility to major markets worldwide, including South Korea, the United States and Europe. The partnership will initially cover major appliance product categories, such as washing machines, dryers and dishwashers, and will gradually be expanded to other types of appliances in the future.
The widespread adoption of HCA Specification 1.0 to development makes it possible to monitor and control various brands’ home appliances and air solutions using a single application. With the ThinQ app, users just have to register their compatible products, and then they’re ready to enjoy the ease and time-saving freedom of one-stop device management. Those with an LG washing machine and a Samsung dishwasher in the home, for example, will no longer have to switch between each manufacturer’s app to set their preferred wash cycle and cleaning settings.
The arrival of true cross-brand interconnectivity is the realization of the HCA’s vision for a seamlessly unified smart home experience. Founded in January 2022 and comprising a number of smart home solutions manufacturers, the HCA aims to provide cloud-based interoperability between the smart home platforms of its member companies. As a board member of the alliance, LG has been working closely with other appliance makers, including Samsung and Vestel, to drive the adoption of HCA Specification 1.0, with the ultimate goal of enhancing user convenience.
Committed to expanding the smart home ecosystem, LG has also actively supported the work of the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA), a global organization dedicated to developing open communication protocols for smart home devices. LG contributed to the development and standardization of the Matter protocol, an Internet Protocol-based home IoT communications standard led by the CSA.
“LG ThinQ enables a seamlessly interconnected home appliance ecosystem that will provide new smart home experiences to customers around the globe,” said Jung Ki-hyun, executive vice president and head of platform business center. “LG will continue to expand compatibility between ThinQ and other HCA members’ smart home platforms.”

Its 136-inch, 4K UHD (3840 x 2160), 120Hz-refresh-rate screen is great for watching movies, TV shows and sporting events – and for admiring artworks – in the privacy of one’s home. By combining the performance of Micro LED with convenient features that enhance content enjoyment, LG has created a unique display for those who demand the very best.

LG’s Micro LED solution for the home has a bezel-less screen for immersive viewing experience, and has a sturdy, stylish aluminum frame with a brushed metal finish that complements any interior décor or color scheme. Likewise, the Media Box, which serves as a controller for LG MAGNIT and shares the display’s luxurious yet understated aesthetic, harmonizes beautifully with the surrounding environment.
Having produced such a superlative screen, LG tasked itself with finding a sound partner capable of providing an audio solution that could match MAGNIT in terms of design beauty and outstanding performance. Bang & Olufsen – beloved by audiophiles since 1925 – immediately understood LG’s vision for elevating the home cinema experience, and knew exactly which of its superior sound solutions would best complement LG MAGNIT: the distinctive, dynamic Beolab 90.
Bundled with LG MAGNIT, Bang & Olufsen’s Beolab 90 speakers are the ideal match for LG’s Micro LED innovation in both style and performance. An aesthetic and acoustic masterpiece, Beolab 90 boasts an iconic design featuring curved wooden bases, a series of angular facets covered in sleek fabric, and finishing touches of brushed aluminum. The stunning Beolab 90 sits at the top of Bang & Olufsen’s range of Beolab speakers, all of which are compatible with LG MAGNIT.
Beolab 90 is a floor-standing speaker that adapts output to the space it is in and the type of audio it is reproducing. With 8,200 watts per speaker, 18 premium drivers, 14 channels of 300-watt ICE power amplifiers and 4 channels of 1,000-watt Class D Heliox amplifiers, Bang & Olufsen’s Beolab 90 makes music and soundtracks come to life in a way that few speakers can.
Dedicated to delivering outstanding home cinema and user experiences, LG and Bang & Olufsen conducted several rounds of testing to ensure seamless compatibility between the webOS platform installed on LG MAGNIT, and Bang & Olufsen’s software application. Thanks to these efforts, users can now enjoy the convenience of being able to control both LG MAGNIT and Beolab 90 via Bang & Olufsen’s remote controller.
The LG MAGNIT with Bang & Olufsen’s Beolab 90 speakers is currently on display at international locations. Visitors can experience this pairing at the LG Business Innovation Center in Dubai, UAE, as well as at the Bang & Olufsen store in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
