Lecture/Seminar Visiting Artist Lecture: Jinny Yu 2017-03-22 19:30:00
Description

Orion Visitor in Fine Arts

Jinny Yu’s work grows out of an inquiry into the medium of painting, as a means of trying to understand the world around us. Denaturalizing the medium and questioning its authority, her recent project Don’t They Ever Stop Migrat- ing? was exhibited at the 56th Venice Biennale. It subsequently toured at The Rooms and was acquired by the Agnes Etherington Art Centre. Her previous work has been shown widely, including exhibitions in Canada, Germany, Ja- pan, Italy, Portugal, South Korea, UK and USA. She was an artist in residence at the ISCP in New York, Nanji Art Studios in Seoul, and at the Banff Centre for the Arts.

Yu, an Associate Professor of Painting at the University of Ottawa, was award- ed the Mid-Career Artist Award by Ottawa Arts Council in 2013; Laura Ciruls Painting Award from Ontario Arts Foundation in 2012; and was a nalist for the Pulse Prize New York Prize 2011 and 2014.
