I am a DPhil candidate in History of Art, specialising in Korean contemporary art under the supervision of Professor J.P. Park. I have been working as an art critic, 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 have been supported by the Ministries of France, Japan, and Korea, Asia-Europe Foundation, Korea Foundation, Arts Council Korea, Seoul Museum of Art, and Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture among many others.
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 (KAMS). I graduated summa cum laude from Yonsei University in 2015, double-majoring in French language&literature and digital arts as a valedictorian. My current doctoral research is generously funded by Lotte Foundation.
