Katie Yun is an artist and a chef whose work explores identity and its inherent politics. In 2017, she completed her BFA in Studio Art with a concentration in Printmaking from Washington University in St. Louis, along with a double major in Psychology and Brain Sciences. She was awarded the Eda L. and Clarence C. Cushing Memorial Prize in Painting in 2016 and the Peter Marcus Prize in Printmaking in 2017. Katie’s work has been shown in multiple galleries including the Des Lee Gallery, the Duet Gallery, and the Granite City Art and Design District Gallery in St. Louis. In the fall of 2016, Katie and Sachi Nagase founded the Sprouted Radish Supper Club, to create food experiences with roots in East-Asian cooking for diverse groups of people. The primary focus was to create an accessible dining experience– six courses for $12– and bring people from different communities together. Having fed over 200 people, Katie and Sachi create dishes around their need to rediscover the smells and tastes they have lost from their childhoods. Currently, Katie is based in Shelburne Falls, MA where she recently completed a printmaking apprenticeship with Wingate Studio in New Hampshire. She continues to host multi–course dinners which are "pay what you wish.” She will be working for Eleven Madison Park in NYC starting in the Spring of 2018.
