Seattle’s Asian Art Museum is to hold a major exhibition of Korean contemporary art.

Titled Paradox of Place, the show will feature six artists from the region working in a variety of fields – from photography and mixed media to sculpture.

The museum explains: “The North-South Korea division is not the only sociopolitical context contemporary Korean artists live in; they’ve also experienced military dictatorships and democratization, modernization, and globalization.

“Their life experiences, however unsettling they might be, provide rich subject matter for their work.”
