미래; みらい; mirae lee is an emerging cultural producer and sociocultural anthropologist, and an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Tkarón:to/Toronto. She is also the Community Director at Project 40 Collective, and passionate about supporting and creating spaces for under-recognized voices in the local arts scene.
Her creative practice is grounded in the poetics of loss and incomprehensibility, and strongly rooted in the ongoing navigation with her positionality on the land she resides and those she shares it with. She prefers to communicate through visual mixed media and bilingual prose, and is currently creating her first bilingual zine series.
Her current research interests are exploring the discourse of "multiculturalism" and "feminism" through and within Korean mass media phenomena; and the possibilities / intersections of “community” / context-based art within the wider sociopolitical landscape in Asia, particularly South Korea. Much of her work underlies a bigger interest of the lived experiences of Korean diasporic women in Canada.
Her hobbies include spending unnecessary amount of time exploring alternative, independent, local artists in the Korean music scene, and writing about them here.
