Christa Joo Hyun D'Angelo is an American artist based in Berlin.

She attended the Maryland Institute College of Art studying under TJ Demos and later the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow Poland where she later obtained her BFA.

Over the last few years D'Angelo's work has evolved into a research based art practice that encompasses political issues concerning the politics of representations regarding class, race, sexuality and gender paradigms that exist within our shared media landscape.

Recently, D'Angelo begun to explore the production of race in both transnational spaces and urban areas within Eurocentric and American media zones, highlighting the questions of “exoticism” and object fetishism as a form of racism.  Her work attempts to reconstruct conventional modes of identification, while rejecting the restrictive categories of identity in order to adopt a more plural way of experiencing race, gender and sexual relationships.

D'Angelo's work has been featured in Art in America, Artforum, The Huffingtonpost, Kenzo's Kenzine, and she has exhibited in Volta Artfair, Galerie Suvi Lehtinen, September Gallery, and was the 2014 studio grant holder from District Berlin.

She currently lives and works in Berlin with her retired greyhound.
