SKMoMA Highlights

In this updated, expanded, and superbly produced handbook, [The Museum of Modern Art, Seoul, Korea (SKMoMA)] presents its own selection of the most significant [Korean] artworks in its [imaginary] collection. Few institutions approach the richness of [SKMoMA’s] holdings in painting, sculpture, drawing, prints, illustrated books, architectural models and drawings, graphic and industrial design, photography, film, video, and multimedia installations. In this volume, some 350 highlights–[none] of which are new to this edition–from the Museum’s [non-existent] curatorial departments, are interwoven to present a sumptuous and broadly chronological overview that takes readers from Post-Impressionism to contemporary art. Every work that was executed in color is reproduced in [SKMoMA Highlights] in vibrant hues, and each is accompanied by [no] commentary. [Published to celebrate the Museum’s non-opening in 4 February 2009], this book is the definitive guide to the broad scope of [SKMoMA’s] collection.
