Despite its relatively small size, Korea has perhaps the most sophisticated contemporary art scene in Asia. In recent years, its vibrancy has been lighting up the whole world, with artists such as Do Ho Suh, Kimsooja, Michael Joo and Koo Jeong-A emerging as major players on the international art scene. This book profiles these and many other acclaimed figures as well as of such up-and-coming artists as Lee Yong Baek, Jeon Joohno, Moon Kyungwon and Nikki S. Lee. Influential curators, among them Doryun Chong, Seungduk Kim, Sungwon Kim and Young Chul Lee, are also interviewed, as are heads of some of the countrys leading arts institutions. The country's art historical origins are explored within the context of modernist preoccupations both inside and outside Korea. Incisive and in-depth essays by leading international scholars Sook-Kyung Lee, Youngna Kim and John Rajchman serve to make the book a vital resource for both those in the know and readers wishing to acquaint themselves with Korea's contemporary scene for the first time.
