Hyeyoung Shin joined the Department of Art & Art History in 2013, and she teaches printmaking and drawing courses. Shin is an artist and educator; whose artwork seeks to create a space for sharing experiences with people. Throughout her art practices, she is interested in creating some sort of an ambiguous space to speak about human vulnerability and collective sense of belongings where we are able to define and value ourselves as human being. The representation and experience of her artwork, which can be taken intimately and emotionally, is an acceptance and respect of what it is to be human. Shin’s recent paper sculpture ‘Immeasurable’ won the Best in Show for the Cambridge Art Association’s ‘2021 Prize Show’ and paper sculpture installation ‘TIDE’ invited to present in ‘2020 Women to Watch: Paper Route’ at the National Museum of Women in the Art, Washington DC.
