About the Instructor - Juntae TeeJay Hwang
Hello! My name is Juntae TeeJay Hwang, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share my passion for the arts with you. As an artist who blends video, performance, painting, and sculpture, I have spent years exploring the complexities of expectations, miscommunications, value, and purpose. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts degree from Slade School of Fine Art at University College London, UK, and a Master of Fine Arts from Columbia University in the City of New York. I am excited to bring my expertise to the classroom and guide students in their own artistic explorations. Through my work, I hope to inspire students to think critically about the world around them and to use their creative talents to make meaningful contributions to society. I believe that every student has the potential to unlock their creativity and achieve their artistic goals, and I am committed to providing a supportive and inclusive learning environment that encourages experimentation and self-expression.
I am honored to have had my work featured in exhibitions at art institutions, including the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Seoul, ICA Philadelphia, ICA Singapore, ICA London, Jewish Museum New York, Art in General New York, CCA Tallinn, Bury Art Museum and Sculpture Centre, Camden Art Centre, Xpace Cultural Centre Toronto, Black Cube Nomadic Art Museum, RedLine Contemporary Art Center, and Denver Art Museum. I look forward to sharing my experiences and insights with my students and helping them to reach their full creative potential.
