artist, writer, fashion designer
sally yërin oh is currently pursuing her interdisciplinary master of arts degree in
cultural analysis, social practice art, gender studies, and asian american diaspora.
she teaches fashion design at harlem school of the arts, freelances as a visual artist and fashion designer, and
works as the program assistant of nyu steinhardt’s department of art and education.
born in seoul and raised in dallas, oh's bicultural conservative upbringing informs her exploration of tensions between familial identity and selfhood, korean-ness and american-ness, gender sexuality and religion, and shame and liberation. after earning a bfa in apparel design at rhode island school of design, working in the fashion industry fueled her urgency to address its exploitative, vapid, un-sustainable nature. while her artwork serves as allegorical mediums of self-expression, oh's intention to utilize the intersection of art and activism to spark productive dialogue and create positive social change is what drives her practice.
