  • soJin Chun is a Toronto-based artist-curator who explores the alternative dialogues that emerge in between cultures and disciplines. She spent most of her happy childhood lost in translation, and her Korean diasporic experience living in Bolivia and Canada inspires her artistic and curatorial practice. Chun’s work explores artists, identities, spaces and narratives that exist outside of dominant representations. She aims to create spaces to present contemporary art that is socially engaged and relevant for communities with a lack of access to the arts while commenting on a greater social and/or political struggle. Collaboration is an essential part of her process, and she has worked extensively with BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ communities in Canada and South America.
