Presented free of charge
Reservations required here.


For over twenty years, the paintings and site-installations of Yunhee Min have pushed the boundaries of abstraction through her use of color, materials, and processes. Informed by complex legacies of abstraction and her continual experimentations with materials and processes, Min approaches her paintings as an operation of looking and the physical process of making. Both in her paintings and site-installations, her desire is to engender uncertainty, openness and pleasure experience in time.


Korean-born and LA-based, Yunhee Min’s site-specific installations and architectural interventions have been on view at the UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), and Night Gallery, Los Angeles. She has had solo exhibitions at LAXART, Los Angeles, CA; The Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, CA, (project space); ArtPace, San Antonio, TX, (project space); the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, CA; and Exercise, Vancouver, BC. Min’s work has been included in numerous group exhibitions, including at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA; Silvershed, New York, NY; Sweeney Art Gallery, Riverside, CA; Weatherspoon Museum, Greensboro, NC; CCAC Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco, CA; Seattle Art Museum, Seattle WA; and Artists Space, New York, NY. Her work is in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, and the UCLA Hammer Museum, Santa Monica, CA. She received a BFA from Art Center College of Design and an MA from Harvard University. Min is Professor of Art at UC Riverside.
