Features 18 contemporary Korean artists who were specially selected to highlight the historical dynamism of modern Korea. The artists experienced Korea’s turbulent history from authoritarian military regimes through the dramatic democratization and flourishing industrial development of its formative years. Their work, which reflects on the past but incorporates contemporary exchange with the global art community, has received international recognition.
This exhibition is organized by the Korea College Association of Art, a non-profit academic association of artists/faculty from leading art universities in Korea.
