On being an artist - Yona Lee
Wed 15 June, time tbc, Zoom
Joining us from the Netherlands, artist Yona Lee will share her thoughts and experiences on practicing as a professional artist. With a growing international reputation, her largest solo exhibition to date, An Arrangement for 5 Rooms, is currently on at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki. Developing a professional art practice involves commitment, strategy, organizational skills and relationship building. In this session we will hear from the perspective of an artist forging a national and international career.

She lives and works in Auckland, New Zealand, and completed her MFA at Auckland University Elam School of Fine Arts in 2010.
