The PNCA Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies Lecture: Young Chung, Founder and Space Operator of Commonwealth and Council

June 15, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm PDT

Two men are seated on benches, one with blue hair and the other with short brunette hair. They face each other, and one talks while the other listens.

The PNCA Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies is excited to welcome Young Chung, Founder and Space Operator of Commonwealth and Council for a lecture on our work and practice Tuesday, June 15 1:30pm PST

Young Chung (we/us/ours) is the Founder and Space Operator of Commonwealth and Council, a gallery in Koreatown, Los Angeles founded in 2010. Our program is rooted in our commitment to explore how a community of artists can sustain our co-existence through generosity and hospitality. Commonwealth and Council celebrates our manifold identities and experiences through the shared dialogue of art—championing practices by women, queer, POC, and our ally artists to build counter-histories that reflect our individual and collective realities. Chung received an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1998 and BA from University of California, Irvine in 1996.

This event is part of the Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies Summer 2020 Lecture Series. Join us Tuesday afternoons in June and July 2021 for conversations on art and ideas.

PNCA’s Low-Residency MFA is organized to be an innovative hybrid of an MFA degree and an artist residency. The low-residency program has a longer degree-completion times (3 years), flexible schedules, intensive residency periods, lower cost of attendance, and the distance-learning component, which does not require students to permanently relocate. Furthermore, the program is interdisciplinary, offering artists of all media and stages of their development the opportunity to refine their vision
