I am a first-year DPhil student in History of Art, specialising in Korean contemporary art under the supervision of Professor J.P. Park. I have been working as an arts writer, curator, and translator based in Seoul, before coming to Oxford. (www.minjiswriting.xyz) My research and curatorial projects centering on Asian contemporary art and cultural mobility were funded by several institutions, including the Ministries of France, Japan, and Korea, Asia-Europe Foundation, Korea Foundation, Seoul Museum of Art, and Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture.
After studying contemporary art history in the interdisciplinary MA program in art management at Seoul National University, I have worked as a curatorial assistant at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA), and a coordinator at the Korea Arts Management Service. I graduated summa cum laude from Yonsei University, double-majoring in French language&literature and digital arts as a valedictorian.
