FACULTY

- Bohyun Yoon -

Yoon’s art practice is very much influenced by the fields of science and physics as his work continuously exposes what is often invisible. Yoon exposes socially constructed notions of race, class, and gender by combining images of the human body with materials that possess invisible properties. To aid the physical properties of glass in speaking about society, Yoon’s art uses a variety of media and phenomena, for instance sound, reflection, and human perception. Yoon Received MFAs from both Rhode Island School of Design and Tama Art University. He has exhibited his works in FILE Sao Paulo, Singapore Open Media Art Festival, Museum of Arts and Design NY, Renwick Gallery in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Syracuse University and Hunter College. His work is in the collection at Smithsonian American Art Museum, Song Eun Art Space, Tama Art University and West Collection.
