Young Art Administrator Profiles: Min Hee Lee

Bonniekate: What city do your currently live in?
Min Hee Lee: I am staying in Manhattan near the Times Square!

BK: What city are you from?
MHL: I am from Seoul, Korea.

BK: You are at Steinhardt – what is the focus of your study?
MHL: I am studying Visual Arts Administration now. I am interested in the current of an international art market and the works of contemporary artists.

BK: What interests you about the art world, and how do you want to interact with art as the focus of your profession?
MHL: As I studied graphic design at the design school(SVA) in New York, I had a lot of chance to meet young artists who are currently working in NY, and I helped making posters or brochures for them. From now on, I want to study more about managing or promoting their exhibitions, so I am trying to understand the flow of contemporary art in America by reading various materials in class and seeing exhibitions.

BK: What city interests you for your future career/home?
MHL: New York City is a very attractive city as a center of art field. I would make a career in this city for my future.

MK: What is the worst piece of artwork that you have ever seen?
MHL: I don’t want to judge the art pieces either the worst or the best since every art piece is valuable based on artists’ thoughts. However, Paul McCarthy’s Basement Bunker made me feel depressed and stressful after seeing the art pieces.

BK: Who is your favorite living artist?
MHL: Yoshimoto Nara is one of my favorite artists. He is a Japanese artist who currently working in Tokyo.

BK: If you were going to have a career outside of the art world, what do you think you would like to do?
MHL: Maybe I would like to do writing or editing scripts for the film or broadcasting.

How I Stay Bi-Coastal

Does it count as being bi-coastal if my home page is?
Recently, I have been joyfully settling in a bit more to my life in NY. However I am seeing this tax my California ties. It’s a natural thing, but so much of the natural world is painful. When do we know to let go? How do we recognize the things that are worth grasping for, and not letting go of? It’s a challenge to balance these things.
For now, I keep this reminder on my browser, and hope I choose wisely.
