Michael Joo

Collaborated Project:

Breaking the Waves

Michael Joo was born in 1966. He lives and works in New York. Using a range of materials and media, and with an emphasis on process, Joo juxtaposes humanity’s various states of knowledge and culture, addressing the fluid nature of identity itself, and prompting us to question how and why we perceive the world as we do. Joo exhibited at institutions around the world including the Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C.; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Sharjah Biennial 12; Serpentine Gallery, London; and MIT’s List Visual Arts Center, Massachusetts. Joo was a co-recipient of the grand prize at the 2006 Gwangju Biennial, and represented Korea at the Venice Biennale in 2001.
