Joyce Yu-Jean Lee creates video installations that examine how various cultures have historically depicted illumination--physical, intellectual, and spiritual illumination. She aims to slow viewers down to discover new space in their seeing and visual consumption. 

She is the recipient of the 2011-2013 C. Sylvia and Eddie C. Brown Studio at the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower; a 2010 Henry Walters Traveling Scholarship by The Walters Art Museum to The Netherlands and Germany; a 2010-2012 So Hamiltonian Fellowship; and a 2008-2010 Harvey Fellowship. She has been awarded various supported residencies and has exhibited at Hamiltonian Gallery in D.C.; Conner Contemporary in D.C.; Heidi Cho Gallery in Chelsea, New York; SCOPE Art Fair in New York; (e)merge Art Fair in D.C.; and at various international locations including Taiwan and Germany.

Joyce currently teaches at the Maryland Institute College of Art: Professional Practices for the Visual Artist to MFA students and Electronic Media Arts and Culture to freshmen. She has resided on the east coast since 1998, and can be found cruising around “Charm City” on her 1978 Puch moped and her trusty bicycle.
