invites fifteen specialists in Korean modern and contemporary art to give
presentations that survey the diverse developments of Korean art from 1953 to the present.
Following Korea’s liberation from imperial Japan, and the signing of the Korean Armistice
Agreement, a tumultuous political climate beset the country, forever changing the pursuit of
art for generations to come. These scholars will discuss the art movements and collectives
that flourished and evolved during these important years of political conflict, artistic
innovation and global interactions. The specialists will cover a wide range of issues: from
material representations and canonical artworks to new media and digital networks, as well
as, topics devoted to film, photography, and architecture.
