About the artist:
Working within the confluence of linguistic, social and technical forms of language and convention, Bang Geul Han aims to both explore and blur the coded spaces dividing understandings of fiction and non-fiction, and public and private. Focusing on the permeable and elastic nature of translations and transitions, her work examines the contradiction of linguistic and technological systems as sites of totalizing standardization, as well as fertile grounds for subversion and creativity.
Han earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in electronic integrated art from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, and a BFA in painting from the Seoul National University. Han has received many fellowships and completed artist residencies, including at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, the MacDowell Colony and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Workspace Program. She is an assistant professor in the Digital Arts and Sciences Program at Clarkson University, Potsdam.
The Art Museum at SUNY Potsdam serves as the center for visual arts at the College, and encompasses all of the collections found throughout campus, including in the Gibson Gallery. The Museum is dedicated to the exhibition and interpretation of quality works of art, and its collection includes significant artworks from the 20th and 21st centuries as well as earlier pieces. The mission of The Art Museum at The State University of New York at Potsdam is to make direct experience of the visual arts accessible to students, faculty, staff and alumni of the College, as well as to residents of Northern New York.
Admission to the Gibson Gallery, located at Brainerd Hall, is free, and the exhibition space is handicapped-accessible. The Art Museum is open to the public from noon until 5 p.m. on Monday and Friday, from noon until 7 p.m. from Tuesday through Thursday, and from noon until 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
