Christa Joo Hyun D'Angelo is a Korean American artist based in Berlin. Her work explores the production of race, sexuality, gender and power dynamics within popular culture and in Western aesthetics. She has shown at The Screen City Biennial, Halle 14, PS120 and VoltaNY and has been reviewed in Artform, Art in America and The New York Times.
During her time in Winnipeg, she will be editing the video work Protest and Desire for the forthcoming solo exhibition, GHOSTS, which opens at Galerie im Turm in Berlin in July 2019. Protest and Desire will investigate how race and STDs function as forms of discrimination and misogyny. It explores how older women relate to their sexuality and engage in romance and how STDs are different for women and women of color within the scope of Western discourse.
