Emily Shin-Jie Lee

Emily Shin-Jie Lee works at Framer Framed on residencies, partnerships and research projects.

Emily studied anthropology at National Taiwan University and obtained her Research MA Art Studies degree from the University of Amsterdam. Her thesis explored artist-in-residence programmes in ethnographic museums from a decolonial perspective. Emily is interested in forms of collaborative art practices and ways to create spaces of affective encounters. Her curatorial work is often realised through discursive formats involving multiple partners and interlocutors.

Emily is one of the founding members of Lightbox, a public photo library and center for contemporary photography in Taipei; and co-founder of Hide & Seek Audiovisual Art, a multidisciplinary collective focusing on cultural mediation and alternative pedagogy. Prior to her relocation in the Netherlands, she worked at galerie nichido Taipei with a focus on exhibition projects between and across Taiwan and South/East Asia.
