Joo Yeon Woo will be visiting the Department of Art and Art History to give an artist talk on Monday, November 14 at 4 p.m. in the Wold Resource Center.
Woo’s talk will highlight aspects of cultural experience from the perspective of an immigrant belonging to a racial minority. Woo’s work explores fluidity of identity, sense of place and placeless-ness, boundary, and multicultural diaspora in her art. She works in a multitude of mediums including drawing, paintings, photography, and installation.

She has exhibited widely, including at the A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn, the Tampa Museum of Art in Tampa, the Sejong Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea, and the Vargas Museum in Manila, Philippines. She has been a resident artist at the VCCA in Virginia, Ami Art Museum in Dangjin, South Korea, and the Red Gate Residency in Beijing, China. She received the AHL Contemporary Art Award in NYC and the Korean National Art Festival Award at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in South Korea. Woo is currently an Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of South Florida, Tampa.
