This unique survey examines the contemporary art scene in Korea, which is one of the most dynamic and least known areas of the contemporary art work. The works of today’s Korean artists are rarely found between the pages of any general art book, yet they have become a major force in the global art world. Korea is rich with internationally renowned painters, photographers, and multi-media artists. This book features Korea’s most talented and prolific artists and their works, from the powerful and grand-scale installations of Do Ho Suh and the eye-popping sculptures of Choi Jeong-Hwa, to the minimalist performance of Kimsooja, and the intellectually challenging videos and sculptures of Michael Joo. The artists’ diverse bodies of work often deal with issues relating to tradition, politics, society, alienation, identity, and popular culture. This generously illustrated and engagingly written volume offers a concise introduction to the world of contemporary Korean art.
