Sook-Kyung LEE is Senior Curator of International Art at Tate Modern, where she works across exhibitions, collection displays and acquisitions. She has overseen the strategic vision and programming for the ‘Hyundai Tate Research Centre: Transnational’ since 2019, a major multi-year research initiative for curatorial innovation. Lee curated a number of major exhibitions at Tate, including Nam June Paik (2019-20, Tate Modern) and Doug Aitken: The Source (2012-13, Tate Liverpool as part of Liverpool Biennial). She has also curated several collection-based exhibitions and displays at Tate Modern, such as A Year in Art: Australia 1992 (2021-22), CAMP (2019-21), and Xiao Lu and Niki de Saint Phalle (2018-19). She also served as the Commissioner and Curator of the Korean Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale.
Nam June Paik (1932-2006) lived and worked in several ideal arenas for creative experimentation including Seoul, Tokyo, Düsseldorf and New York. He found and developed artistic camaraderie in each of these locations. Paik’s encounters with peers stimulated his avant-garde interests, and in turn, his presence contributed to the development of experimental artistic communities.
