Curator, Researcher, Writer
Based in Seoul

Eunha Chang is a curator, researcher, and writer based in Seoul, with a specialization in contemporary art and ecology. Holding an MA in Contemporary Art Theory from Goldsmiths, University of London, where she graduated with distinction, Chang's academic pursuits have significantly influenced her curatorial approach, particularly her focus on (invasive) species, sovereignty, and transcultural memory. Her commitment to these themes is reflected in her diverse curatorial projects, such as Beings Swimming Backstroke towards the Waterfall (2023-2024, PS333, Seoul) and Autophagy: Eating in its Destructive and Creative Nature (2022-2023, Beautifulsoup & de Appel, online & Amsterdam), both of which have received acclaim and support from notable institutions like Arts Council Korea (ARKO).

Eunha Chang has also demonstrated her curatorial acumen through her involvement in international projects, showcasing her ability to bridge cultural and ecological discourses across continents. Her projects like Migration to a New Earth Planet (2021, Asia Culture Center, Gwangju) and Portals, Teleportation (2021, Ankara House, Seoul & Istanbul) underline her innovative approach and commitment to exploring complex themes through art. This international perspective is further enhanced by her experience at Istanbul Biennial (Curator Nicolas Bourriaud, 2019), National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, Seoul Museum of Art and Gwangju Design Biennale (Co-Artistic Directors Seung H-Sang and Ai Weiwei, 2011) where she contributed to significant exhibitions and engaged in international exchanges.

Her outstanding achievements have been recognized with numerous awards and grants, including the prestigious 2024 Emerging Visual Artist Support Program Grant from ARKO and a nomination for the Fulbright Graduate Student Program Scholarship. These accolades underscore her influence and potential in the art world. Chang's extensive travel and participation in global workshops, such as the APE CAMP and Korea Foundation’s Korean Art Workshop, have enriched her understanding and approach to curatorial practices. These experiences, coupled with her educational background, have established her as a formidable figure in the field of contemporary art and ecology.

Her upcoming publications, such as Post-sexual Futures: Towards Queer Non-humanisms (2025, upcoming) indicate her ongoing commitment to pushing the boundaries of conventional discourse and exploring new frontiers in art and ecology.
