HyeYoon Song is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily in print, painting and sculpture. Having been born in South Korea and experiences of migration to New Zealand and to the United States, her work finds its genesis in the narrative of migration and the role of Asian-diaspora chronicling the evolving perceptions of nationhood and cultural identity. Through writing, research and studio practice, her work examines the account of collective and personal nostalgia and the systems of assimilation through objectification. Compelled by the intersection of arts, education and the impact created in enacting social changes, her practice extends into designing project based curriculum integrating technical skills to equip youth to exercise their voices and power. Her primary focus as an artist is on printmaking, painting and sculpture, HyeYoon Song explores landscape, identity and narrative in her work by exploring the vocabularies of print and the multiple in an unconventional and multi-disciplinary context. She currently holds a position as the Protest + Print lead instructor at Girls Garage and Art Stars Newcomers project and has exhibited at numerous institutions in the Bay Area. HyeYoon obtained a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a MFA at the California College of the Arts.
