Julia Kwon

Julia Kwon is an interdisciplinary artist who sews Korean patchwork textiles that comment on the objectification of Asiatic female bodies, challenge the notion of authenticity, and examine the complexities of constructing identities within the context of globalism, cultural hybridity, intersectionality, and the collective struggle for social justice. Her work argues for capacious possibilities for one’s identity and sense of community. Public collections include Smithsonian American Art Museum and Renwick Gallery (Washington, DC), Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum (New York, NY), Museum of International Folk Art (Santa Fe, NM), among others.
