We are delighted to welcome art curator Binna Choi who will deliver a lunchtime talk at Hugh Lane Gallery.

Binna Choi is one of the three Curators of Hawai‘i Triennial 2025 (HT25) with Wassan Al-Khudhairi and Noelle M.K.Y. Kahanu. As the first curatorial team for the Triennial composed of women of colour in a non-hierarchical arrangement and hailing from different native and non-native backgrounds, the three curators are working collaboratively to deliver HT25.

Binna Choi is a curator based in South Korea and the Netherlands. Choi served as the director at Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons in Utrecht (2008–2023). Under her fifteen-year directorship, Casco carved its position as a place for affective community with situated artistic and curatorial study-practice and experimentation, in particular, on the notion of the commons and (art) institution and for transnational alliances and solidarity. Her key curatorial-collaborative projects at Casco include Grand Domestic Revolution (2009–2012), Site for Unlearning (Art Organization) (2014–2018), Travelling Farm Museum of Forgotten Skills (2018–2023), next to engagements with networks like Arts Collaboratory (2014–), Afield (2019–), and Cluster (2012–2014) with different capacities. Choi has also engaged with large-scale perennial exhibitions: as co-artistic director for Singapore Biennale 2022, named Natasha; and as curator for 11th Gwangju Biennale (2016), titled The Eighth Climate (What does art do?). Choi is an elective member of Academy of the Arts of the World in Cologne, Germany, where she curated the exhibition project Gwangju Lessons (2020), which traveled to the Asia Culture Center in Gwangju, South Korea.
