Korea's transformation over the last thirty years has been unique in the world and this is the most comprehensive English language survey of contemporary art from Korea ever published

120 artists, museum and gallery directors, curators and collectors are represented in this lavishly illustrated book making it a vital resource for both those in the know and readers wishing to acquaint themselves with Korea's contemporary scene for the first time.

As a nation prospers, so does its art. Although Korean contemporary artists take both global and local issues into account in their work, what makes Korean art unique are its diversity and its individuality, informed and enriched by rigorous experimentation and cultural exploration.

In recent years, Korean contemporary art's vibrancy has been recognised in the international arena, with artists such as Do Ho Suh, Kimsooja, Michael Joo and Koo Jeong-A appearing as major figures. The book presents profiles of these internationally recognised figures as well as of such up-and-coming artists as Lee Yongbaek, Jeon Joonho, Moon Kyungwon and Nikki S. Lee.

Further texts also profile influential curators, as well as the country's leading arts institutions, among them the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea; Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art; the Nam June Paik Art Center and the Seoul Museum of Art. The Gwangju Biennale is also highlighted.
