Kimberly Yu


Kimberly Yu studies contemporary art with a focus on how new media visualize conditions of capitalism and geopolitical struggles across East Asia and North America. Her current research examines the works of artists responding to demilitarized environments uniquely situated in the transpacific where different governments, cultures, and species intersect. Yu graduated from Dartmouth College in 2018 with degrees in art history and English. She has held positions at the Smithsonian Institution’s Archives of American Art, the Hood Museum of Art, the Dallas Museum of Art, Talley Dunn Gallery, and the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. Her writing and the exhibitions she has contributed to have touched on subjects such as colonial legacies in contemporary American art, gendered and racialized artistic labor, and Asian American video and performance art.
