Room 165, Center for the Visual Arts

Join us for the School of Art's next First Friday Lecture Series artist talk with visiting artist in print media, Imin Yeh on December 1. The lecture will take place at noon in room 165 at Kent State's Center for the Visual Arts. All lectures are free and open to the public. Imin Yeh is an Assistant Professor of Art at Carnegie Melon University. She received her M.F.A from the California College of the Arts and her B.F.A from the University of Wisconsin Madison. 

Yeh is an interdisciplinary and project-based artist working in sculpture, installation, and participatory events. Her projects use Print Media as a technical tool for realizing the ambition of large-scaled work and Print as a conceptual strategy for exploring free, exchange, and craft based economies. The projects utilize repetitive handcraft and mimicry as a strategy for examining the issues around the unseen labor and production that lies behind our many unconsidered everyday objects. Recent exhibitions include the San Jose Museum of Art, Asian Art Museum (San Francisco), and at the Contemporary Jewish Museum (San Francisco). She has been an Artist in Residency at Montalvo Art Center (Saratoga, CA), Blue Mountain Center (New York), Sandarbh Artist Workshop (Partapur, India), and at Recology San Francisco. Yeh is the recipient of a Eureka Fellowship from the Fleishhacker Foundation and an Individual Artist Grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission.
