[The Chosun Ilbo, January 18 2008] Korean Curator Opens New Doors at UK Gallery

"I want to show my full ability and leave a clear mark as a Korean curator in the British art world. I'll be competing on the same level as British curators," said Dr. Lee Sook-kyung, a curator at the prestigious Tate Liverpool art gallery.

The 38-year-old Lee joined Britain's leading modern art museum in October last year, and is the first Korean curator in the 100-year history of the Tate Gallery. She is now preparing for this fall's 2008 Liverpool Biennale and organizing various exhibitions and displays. Moreover, she will assume an important job on a gallery subcommittee formed to increase the Tate's collection of art from Asian countries, including Korea.
