South Korea's dynamic art scene has produced many internationally acclaimed artists, exhibitions and must-see biennials. However the conversation has been dominated by a handful of key personalities and voices. This book aims to rectify this, serving as a guide to Korean art professionals who are little known both in Asia and further afield. Each of the ten curators highlighted in this volume have contributed an essay on his or her favourite artist, and are interviewed about their backgrounds and interests, as well as their observations of the Korean art world over the years.

Foreword by Cho Wonhong, Kim Geumhee, and Elaine W. Ng. Artists' biographies and images of selected works are included. Curators' biographies are provided at the back.
