In recent years, Korean contemporary art has found its place on the international stage. The Korea Artist Prize and its discerning professional jury reflect this dynamism by selecting Korean artists with a promising future. The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul is a partner in the competition. Its responsibility is to introduce the talented winners to the public. In 2016, discover the urban patchwork of Back Seung-woo, the pasteboard sets of Ham Kyung-ah, and the paintings of Kim Eull.
