Hayoon Jay LeeArtist
Hayoon Jay Lee is an interdisciplinary artist who frequently combines installations, performances, sculptures, videos and paintings. Her work pushes the boundaries of “otherness” through public performance and video. For Jamaica Flux 2021, Lee will host an intercultural dinner, with conversation on topics regarding local food culture, socio-economic factors in relation to habits of consumption and food security. Research conducted at community organizations, such as women’s centers and soup kitchens, will further inform Lee’s Rice Lab installation, which traces the global history of rice.
Lee has participated in numerous residency programs both nationally and internationally. She has exhibited widely, including at the Chinese American Art Council / Gallery 456 (NYC), Gwangju Museum of Art (Korea), 99 Museum (Beijing), The United Nations Gallery (NYC), The Clock Tower, No Longer Empty (NYC), and ArtWalk NY: Coalition for the Homeless (NYC). She currently lives and works in New York City.
