Guest Lecture

kate-hers RHEE: If I can K-Pop dance, I’ll be part of your beauty revolution.

Living and working in Berlin, Germany since 2009, kate-hers RHEE was born in Seoul, South Korea and raised in racially segregated, working-class Mount Clemens, Michigan. She received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her MFA from the University of California - Irvine, where she was a Graduate Studies Diversity and Jacob K. Javits fellow. RHEE’s work has been shown nationally and internationally with recent exhibitions and interactive projects at British Museum - London (2016), Asian Art Museum - Berlin (2016-2017), Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (2016) Group Intervention Video - Montreal (2015), Künstlerhaus Dortmund (2015), Humboldt Lab Dahlem Museum - Berlin (2015), Korean Cultural Service - New York (2015), Berlinische Galerie - Museum for Modern Art (2014) and SOMArts - San Francisco (2014).

In this one hour talk, RHEE will discuss the evolution of her politically engaged work as an artist and her dogged pursuit of cultivating creativity and playful improvisation in her artistic practice. She’ll touch on past work and influences to frame the context of her current interdisciplinary project, called Modern Beauty Ideals in the Age of Digital Technology or If I can K-Pop dance, I’ll be part of your beauty revolution. This work takes the form of photography, drawing, sculpture, video, internet art, installation and social intervention to engage hetero-patriarchal global beauty ideals and accompanying digital technology from a transnational feminist perspective.
