Visiting Artist Program: Sun Young Kang

Wednesday, April 13th, 11:45 AM to 1:00 PM
Zoom address will be emailed upon registration

Sun Young Kang mostly uses paper with its duality of strength and delicacy to create physical or metaphorical spaces ranging from large installations to small intimate books. She holds an MFA in Book Arts/Printmaking from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA and a BFA in Korean Painting from Ewha Womans University in Seoul, Korea. In her work, she explores the duality fundamental to human existence: of different realities or worlds both in space and time and the tension between them; and of the coexistence of antithetical ideas, how death implies life, how the material realm implies the unsubstantial or nonphysical, and how absence implies presence.

Kang has been named as the 2021 University of Alabama in Huntsville Contemporary Art Fellow funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and she is a recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, along with many other prestigious grants and fellowships. Her work has also been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally at venues including the Whanki Museum in Seoul Korea, the Queens Museum in NY, the Whatcom Museum in WA, and many more. Her work can be found in numerous museums and libraries’ special collections.
