Juliana Kang Robinson uses art-making to reflect on power dynamics in the world. Her scenarios reflect the disparities in resources between societies, whose divisions are manifested physically in the world by borders, territorial markers, mounds, and paths.
Born in South Korea, she received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is the recipient of the Nippon Steel Presidential Award, the LeRoy Neiman Foundation Fellowship at the Ox-Bow School of Art and The Women's Studio Workshop Artist Residency. Her work can be found in collections nationally and internationally, such as the Joan Flasch Collection at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Women's Studio Workshop, Garfield Park Conservatory of Chicago, National Museum of Contemporary Art in Oslo, the Artists' Books Collection at the Rikhardinkatu Library of Helsinki, Morris Graves Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon, the San Francisco Public Art collection and the New York Public Library.
