Michelle Chun (b. 1993) is a painter and visual maker. Born and raised in Southern California, she is shaped by experiences of cross-cultural realities and interdisciplinary practices. With a BFA in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and a MAR in Visual and Material Culture from Yale Divinity School, she approaches her practice both as embodied meditation on the sacred ordinary, acute emotions, migration and home while also a theological practice of incarnation, redemption, and liturgy. In 2022, she was a resident at the Ox-Bow School of Art and Artist’s Residency receiving the Longform Scholarship and participated in the Black Arts Movement School Modality taught and facilitated by artists and scholars such as Fred Moten, Sonia Sanchez, and Romi Crawford. She has shown at Helen J Gallery in Los Angeles, The Yard: Williamsburg in New York, and Gelman Gallery in Rhode Island among other exhibitions. She also makes music with the collective Miso Peanut Butter.
