London is getting contemporary Korea crazy!

I wish I were spending the month of June in London. Not because I want to spy on royals and eat scones (does that still happen in London?) but because this month London is looking at the contemporary art scene from South Korea. If you happen to be in London and you have an ounce of my passion for the subject, I hope that you are able to take advantage of these amazing programs:

*A Roundtable on the 9th Gwangju Biennale at the Tate Modern. E-flux gives a nice summary of the biennale listing the curators, themes, and other information.

*The Korean Contemporary Art International Conference: Between Tradition, Modernity, and Globalisation a conference at the Courtauld Institute of Art.
