In the past two decades, there have been major developments in Korean art, as the country has opened up under the influence of globalization. This unprecedented book focuses on the work of twelve of Korea's most significant artists. An introduction by Joan Kee and a chronology track the development of contemporary art in Korea from the 20th century to the present day. Essays by Lynn Zelevansky and Christine Starkman discuss the twelve artists featured: Kimsooja, Bahc Yiso, Do Ho Suh, Choi Jeong-Hwa, Gimhongsok, Jeon Joonho, Kim Beom, Koo Jeong-A, Minouk Lim, Jooyeon Park, Haegue Yang, and Young-hae Chang Heavy Industries. These artists work in a range of media, including sculpture, drawing, video, installation and performance, and the World Wide Web. The book also includes artists' interviews and brief biographies.
