David Chung Featured in New Book About Korean Art


Stamps Professor David Chung is featured in a major new publication from Phaidon Press. Titled Korean Art from 1953: Collision, Innovation and Interaction, it is the first comprehensive survey to explore the rich and complex history of contemporary Korean art. 

From the book’s description: Starting with the armistice that divided the Korean Peninsula in 1953, this one-of-a-kind book spotlights the artistic movements and collectives that have flourished and evolved throughout Korean culture over the past seven decades — from the 1950s avant-garde through to the feminist scene in the 1970s, the birth of the Gwangju Biennale in the 1990s, the lesser known North Korean art scene, and all the artists who have emerged to secure a place in the international art world.”
