Contemporary Art Now

Cover of Korea
Issue 35:4 | December 2015

This bilingual edition on Korean art surveys the response of artists to ultra-rapid modernisation, the north–south division, dissent, gender, performance and the legacies of occupation layered upon timeless cultural traditions. Conceived as an introduction to contemporary Korean art, this edition supports Australia’s cultural relationships with Korea, nurtured through residencies and reciprocal exhibitions.
