      Artist Talk: Anicka Yi

      Anicka Yi was born in Seoul, South Korea, in 1971, and currently lives and works in New York. Her work uses unconventional materials and, at times, methods to engage the senses of the human body to reconfigure biological, political, and personal perceptions. She is the recipient of the 2016 Hugo Boss Prize, and her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, the Fridericianum, Kassel, Germany, Kunsthalle Basel, List Visual Arts Center, MIT, and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
