Haerim Lee

Haerim Lee’s art stimulates dialogue with communities through painting, public murals, ceramics, artist books, and photography. Her practice is rooted in ethnographical research. Her practice critiques institutionalized demarcations of power. Originally from S. Korea, a monoethnic country, she is interested in multi-racial dynamics, particularly in the South Side of Chicago where she currently living in the neighborhood with diverse ethnicities from different backgrounds and cultural heritage. Unlike homogenous culture, living in the particular environment helps her to learn other people’s stories and create a learning space together.

Lee graduated from the MFA Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) in the Painting and Drawing as well as MA Program at the Visual and Critical Studies, and was an instructor in Arts and Street Culture at SAIC.
