Jihyun Shin studied both her B.A. and M.A. in Art Theory. She is interested in the works of contemporary artists and the ways to unravel them into an exhibition. Shin has gained pivotal curatorial experiences from workplaces such as an artist studio, a research institution and a cultural foundation. She is currently working as an exhibition coordinator at Arko Art Center (Arts Council Korea). Shin is looking for ways to maintain her 'enjoyment' about the current state of the art industry, where there is constant influx of new medium, methodologies and discourses. She is currently preparing her master's thesis on Korean Art of the 1990s. Apart from the thesis, her special interest is in the sustainability of traditional medium, especially painting and sculpture, amidst today's prevalence of new media. Her long term goal is to realize her interests through exhibition making and as a foundational beginning to such goal, Shin curated an exhibition called Post-Pictures in 2015.
