Young Joo Lee

Young Joo Lee is a multimedia artist from South Korea, currently living and working in Cambridge, MA and Los Angeles. Her work deals with personal narratives about her experiences of being an immigrant in Europe and the US, a woman, and a cultural nomad. In her recent moving image works, these personal narratives interweave with the current and historical narratives in order to investigate the issues of cultural colonialism, alienation, and assimilation processes.
Young holds an MFA in Sculpture at Yale University and an MFA in Film at the Academy of Fine Arts Städelschule Frankfurt. She currently is a Visiting Lecturer in Animation at the Department of Art, Film and Visual Studies at Harvard University. She was a College Fellow in Media Practice at Harvard University (2018-20), a Fulbright Scholar in Film & Digital Media (2015-18) and a recipient of DAAD artist scholarship (2010-12). Her work has been exhibited in national and international institutions and film/video festivals.
