âModest Monuments: Contemporary Art from Korea' is the first major survey show of Korean art in the East of England. The exhibition presents ten emerging artists from South Korea who play a significant part of today's international contemporary art. The exhibition is curated by Dr Sook-Kyung
Lee, Exhibitions & Displays Curator at Tate Liverpool.
The title stems from the collective characteristics of the participating artists' work. They often commemorate the humble and seemingly insignificant moments of social and personal history, and emphasise a sensibility that is meditative and private, yet socially engaging. The exhibition will provide the audience with a wider understanding of
contemporary Asian art, representing younger artists whose innovative works have been known internationally but not shown widely in the UK.
Participating artists: Sen Chung, Joonho Jeon, Yeondoo Jung, Kira Kim, Yousun Kim, Yong Baek Lee, Kyungwon Moon, Yoon-Young Park, Seung-Ho Yoo, Kijong Zin
