Nayeon Yang
(Palmer Square)

Nayeon Yang is an interdisciplinary artist and social service worker based in Chicago. She moved to the US from S. Korea in 2006. Experiencing the implied status of a 'foreigner' now in both countries, she explores the relations of systemic 'foreign(ness)' and 'presence' as well as capital and labor through her projects.

Yang has exhibited at different venues, including Hyde Park Art Center, Buddy at Chicago Cultural Center, Chicago Artists Coalition, Roots and Culture, Co-Prosperity, Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery (Chicago), apexart (New York City), Roy G. Biv Gallery (Columbus), PAB Open (Bergen), Latitude 53 (Edmonton), Rund Gallery (Seoul), and Mythtake Museum (Cheongpyeong). Also, her upcoming shows will be held at Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) gallery and FotoFocus Biennial at Weston gallery (Cincinnati). Yang is an alumna of residencies such as Center Program, Hatch, High Concept Labs, Birdsell Projects, ACRE, Wassaic Project, and others. Recently, she was awarded an Individual Artists Program grant from the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), SPARK Grants from the Chicago Artists Coalition, and an Individual Artists Support Grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
