South Ko­rean con­tem­po­ra­ry art: no­thing will ever be the same again

Art Press - - RENCONTRE -

With Jin-sang Yoo, a young cri­tic who works a great deal with France, and who co­or­di­na­ted this sec­tion with the kind sup­port of Ko­rea Arts Ma­na­ge­ment Ser­vice (KAMS) in Seoul, we de­ci­ded to li­mit our scope to the France-Ko­rea year that is cur­rent­ly un­der way, wi­thout at­temp­ting to look more wi­de­ly at the Ko­rean scene in ge­ne­ral. This, in­deed, is already quite well known in the West, no­ta­bly for its mo­no­chrome abs­trac­tion. Here, then, we con­si­der the coun­try’s new map of aler­na­tive ex­hi­bi­tion spaces and the work of its young ar­tists, some already known, others about to be dis­co­ve­red.
