Discover one-on-one discussions about each artist’s work, between the curator and artists from RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting. Here’s an interview with artist Jinny Yu.
Jinny Yu’s practice is an inquiry into the medium of painting as a means for seeking to understand the world around us. Her work, which was presented at the 56th Venice Biennale, addresses themes of migration that resonate with larger, global political concerns. Yu works simultaneously to scrutinize conventions and explore new possibilities within the medium of painting, oscillating between the fields of abstraction and the object. Her work has been shown widely, with exhibitions in Canada, Germany, Japan, Italy, Portugal, South Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States.
