Christa Joo Hyun D'Angelo is an American artist based in Berlin working in a wide variety of media including installation, video, neon and works on paper. She has studied under TJ Demos at the Maryland Institute College of Art and The Academy of Fine Art Krakow Poland.

D'Angelo's work encompasses a research based art practice concerning the politics of representations regarding class, race, sexuality and gender paradigms that exist within our shared media landscape.

Her work explores the production of race in both transnational spaces and urban areas within Eurocentric and American media zones, highlighting questions of “exoticism” and object fetishism as a form of racism. She 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.

Recently, her work begun to expand upon narratives that connect body politics to neoliberalism and human animal relations in the competitive sport of global horse racing through various modes of video production. Currently, she is exploring post-colonial themes and the intersectionality of migration and sexuality.

D'Angelo's work has been reviewed in Artforum,The Guardian, Art in America,The New York Times, and Huffingtonpost. Her work has been exhibited at The Centre for Contemporary Art Glasgow,Volta Artfair NYC, Galerie Suvi Lehtinen and September Gallery. She was 2014 studio grant holder from

District Kunst - und Kulturförderung Atelier Grant.
