Catalogue published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Threshold: Byron Kim 1990–2004' at the Rodin Gallery, Seoul. This travelling retrospective of Korean-American artist Byron Kim is organized and circulated by the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, and is guest-curated by Eugenie Tsai. It surveys the artist's work from his early to most recent works.

'Kim's innovative approach to painting knocked down the distinctions between abstract and representation, two traditionally oppositional concepts, and it allowed him to work in the in-between space of the binaries of form and content, concept and sensibility, and the sacred and the profane...All of his works take the form of extreme abstraction in which everything has been crystallized but they, at the same time, contain rich contents, representing things in the world, revealing his deep personal histories, and exploring possibilities of a transcendental reality.' (Foreword, Ra Hee Hong Lee)

Artist's biography, exhibition history, and bibliography are provided.
