May 22nd 2018

Transit Residency (TRANSIT) and CHI PRC welcome Sunmi, selected as Transit’s Inbound Artist-in-Residence at CHIPRC for 2018.

Sunmi is an illustrator, cartoonist, and small press publisher currently residing in Baltimore, MD after having received their BFA in Illustration at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2017. Their work explores themes of emotional distance and fantastical femininity, in relation to queer and Asian-American/Korean diasporic identity and history. They are a transcendent, transgender, sparkling disco darling!

They will be at CHIPRC May 21-June 3. Public programming will include a workshop Memories and Music Saturday May 26 – 7pm, being part of the Two Cookie Minimum reading on Tuesday May 29th, 7pm, and hosting Open Hours on Sunday May 27 12-5p. They will also be a guest, leading a workshop and exhibiting, at the CAKE Chicago on June 2 and 3.

Take this time to meet Sunmi, ask questions about their work and the workshops they’ll be offering during the residency, and welcome them to Chicago!
