Yoon-Jee Choi recently joined the Asian Art Museum – Chong-Moon Lee Center for Asian Art & Culture as the Assistant Curator for Korean Art. Before joining the University of Chicago Ph.D. program in 2018, she studied Korean art history at Ewha Womans University and interned for the National Museum of Korea. While she serves as a specialist in Korean art at the Asian Art Museum, her larger body of research focuses on the art historical exchange among Northeast Asian countries during the early modern era, especially on the 19th-to-early-20th-century cultural interactions and exchanges between Korea and Japan. She is set to complete a Ph.D. examining the industrialization and modernization of the craft industry in Northeast Asia.

Garance Marneur’s wealth of experience includes 15 years in stage design, directing, and art and cultural production. She was named one of the top ten theater designers in the UK. Most recently, Garance created an interactive video exhibition at the Exploratorium and worked with RUSH at Gray Area to create responsive digital art experiences utilizing real-time biometric data of dancers and the audience to guide the course of the performance.

She also served as artistic director for LEVYdance, in San Francisco, where she curated artist residencies that promoted inclusivity and fostered artistic growth in underserved communities, and was co-director and experience designer at Racine de Trois, a theater group and winner of the ARTCENA prize in France.
