Bonniekate: What city do your currently live in?
Min Hee Lee: I am staying in Manhattan near the Times Square!
MHL: I am from Seoul, Korea.
MHL: I am studying Visual Arts Administration now. I am interested in the current of an international art market and the works of contemporary artists.
MHL: As I studied graphic design at the design school(SVA) in New York, I had a lot of chance to meet young artists who are currently working in NY, and I helped making posters or brochures for them. From now on, I want to study more about managing or promoting their exhibitions, so I am trying to understand the flow of contemporary art in America by reading various materials in class and seeing exhibitions.
MHL: New York City is a very attractive city as a center of art field. I would make a career in this city for my future.
MHL: I don’t want to judge the art pieces since every art piece is valuable based on artists’ thoughts. However, Paul McCarthy’s Basement Bunker made me feel depressed and stressful after seeing the art pieces.
MHL: Yoshimoto Nara is one of my favorite artists. He is a Japanese artist who currently working in Tokyo.
MHL: Maybe I would like to do writing or editing scripts for the film or broadcasting.
