Korean and Korean American artists have exploded onto the international art scene in recent years with a contemporary voice that resonates across both East and West. A distinctly Korean art scene has emerged that reveals a world of connectedness and technology, ambitious new architecture, strange fashionistas, K-Pop and contemporary design. It reflects a country breaking from its agricultural background and moving into the 21st century. The World Economic Forum reported South Korea as “the most innovative country in the world in 2018.”
Experience DAE-BAK Super Cool as it explores this new identity by bringing together a group of Korean American and Korean artists based in Los Angeles and in South Korea to highlight the technical mastery and conceptual finesse of artists from this culture.
