Future Present: Contemporary Korean Art



This generously illustrated volume surveys the most talented artists to emerge from South Korea’s burgeoning art scene in the past decade. The 25 artists introduced in this book collectively foreground the facets of contemporary Korean culture that have enabled the country’s cultural exports to resonate so strongly worldwide. Comprising a representative cross-section of artists at the forefront of a generational shift in Korean art, this book brings readers up to speed on one of the most exciting and least understood segments of the art market today.

Encompassing fields of painting, sculpture, installation, video and photography, this book spotlights the diversity of contemporary Korean art practices while offering manifold points of access for readers. Inside, expansive full-color presentations of each artist’s oeuvre are accompanied by concise and approachable texts situating their artworks amid the global contemporary art conversation. Two newly commissioned essays offer deeper analysis of the social and cultural changes experienced by these artists during their formative years.
