Description

The UNLV Department of Art welcomes Yunhee Min to the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art on Thursday, 9/21/2017 at 7pm for the Fall Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Yunhee Min recontextualizes the principles of minimalism and color field theory with luminously calibrated paintings and installations. She is a graduate of Harvard University and Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Germany. Her work has been exhibited at LACMA and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. Min’s 2008 textile sculpture For Instance was permanently installed at the UCLA Hammer Museum in 2012. She is based in Los Angeles.

The UNLV Visiting Artist Lecture Series features a diverse array of some of the most compelling artists and thinkers working in the art world today. This important program brings both established and emerging artists to campus to discuss their work in public lectures, and to offer individual critiques to our BFA and MFA students. This program has established itself as an invaluable resource for UNLV students and the public alike. The primary mission of the Visiting Artists Lecture Series is to educate, inspire and foster a greater understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through visual presentations and discourse.
