Artist-led Walkthrough: Kyungmi Shin on Only the Young: Experimental Art in Korea, 1960s–1970s

  • This is a past program

Join Kyungmi Shin for an artist-led walkthrough of Only the Young: Experimental Art in Korea, 1960s–1970s

Capacity is limited. Visitors will be admitted on a first come, first served basis.


Kyungmi Shin (b.1963, Busan South Korea) is a visual artist living in Los Angeles, CA working with painting, sculpture, and photography. Using her own family photo archive and paintings of historical and cultural narratives in juxtaposition, she places the marginalized bodies at the center of the work – creating artworks that shift the gaze from dominant narratives to immigrant, creolized and complex stories. She received an MFA from UC Berkeley in 1995. Her works have been exhibited at JP Getty Museum, Berkeley Art Museum, Sonje Art Museum (Korea), Japanese American National Art Museum (Los Angeles, CA), and Torrance Art Museum (Torrance, CA), and have received numerous grants including California Community Foundation Grant, Durfee Grant, Pasadena City Individual Artist Fellowship and LA Cultural Affairs Master Artist Grant. Her artwork is in the collection of JP Getty Museum, LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), and BAMFA (Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive).
