Andrea Chung In Conversation

Join artist Andrea Chung for a conversation with Washington, D.C. based art advisor, collector, and lawyer Schwanda Rountree and Los Angeles gallery director Tyler Park, as they reflect on the artist’s thought-provoking practice. They will discuss the impact of Chung’s multidisciplinary processes and research as it relates to care, labour, maternal health, gender, and resistance; as well as the significance of collecting her work in both private and institutional collections.

Andrea Chung was born in New Jersey to Caribbean parents. In her research-based art practice, Chung investigates labour and materials connected to postcolonial countries. She uses perishable and precious materials steeped in her own personal history. In her work, Chung explores broad topics like the body and migration, as well as personal subjects, such as the stories of her ancestors. Chung lives and works in San Diego, California.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Andrea Chung, on view through October 1.
