Printmaker Yoonmi Nam visits campus Nov. 14

Yoonmi Nam, associate professor and associate chair of the visual art department at the University of Kansas, is part of the School of Art and Design’s visiting artist program next week. Nam will present at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 14, in Lawson Hall, room 141.

Nam’s work considers the cross-cultural experience and a sense of transience through prints, drawings and installations. Nam uses images of man-made structures in transition as a metaphor to communicate transience, impermanence, and perhaps our own desire for permanence and immortality. Her recent research interests include the study of traditional ink painting and woodblock prints from East Asia, including those from Japan, Korea, China and Tibet.
