INFO



Jesse Chun is an artist living and working in New York. Chun's work has been exhibited internationally at the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto (Canada); the Nam June Paik Art Center (South Korea); SculptureCenter, NY; Queens Museum, NY; The Drawing Center, NY; BAM, NY; and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics, NY (United States), among others.

Select public collections include the Museum of Modern Art Library (NY); the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (IL); the Smithsonian Institution (DC); the Metropolitan Museum of Art Library (NY); and Kadist (FR). Chun's video poems, abstract scores, sculptures and installations ruminate on language, translation, and historiography. Traversing found institutional narratives and documents as a site for (mis)translation, rupture, and abstraction, Chun's work uncovers new immersive poetics for non-linear passages of meaning, time, and untranslatability.
