Penny Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series: Consolation, JunYeon Kim

Born in Seoul, South Korea, JuYeon Kim works and lives in New York. She has shown in both solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally, including NY, Washington DC, Shanghai, and Seoul. Additionally, Kim has been awarded several residencies such as MacDowell Colony, Kohler AIR, Triangle, and the Roswell Art in Residence Fellowship. Kim has also held several positions as a visiting artist and professor. A 2018-2019 Roman Witt Resident, Kim is creating a multi-media installation work in collaboration with the Stamps School community and composer George Tsontakis that seeks to explore themes around Korean “comfort women”— the female prisoners of the Japanese army during WWII.

This program is organized by the Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design and co-sponsored by UMMA.
