Artlink special issue | Korea Contemporary art now


Artlink, the quarterly magazine published in Australia that covers contemporary art and ideas from the Asia-Pacific region, presents a special bilingual issue on Korean art.

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 relationship with Korea, nurtured through residencies and reciprocal exhibitions.
