Young Chung

Young Chung (b. 1972, Seoul, Korea) is an interdisciplinary artist and curator who established the gallery Commonwealth & Council in 2010, out of his apartment at the corner of, well, Commonwealth and Council. After his landlord shut things down, Chung packed up and moved back to Koreatown, where he grew up, reopening the gallery in an office building upstairs from a Korean church, on the same floor as the oldest Latino Alcoholics Anonymous. So far, he’s done over 100 shows featuring a diverse array of artists (many are queer or people of color) like Jennifer Moon and Alice Könitz, who both went on to win the Hammer Museum’s Mohn Award at its first biennial. The gallery’s original name remains, but the vibe is still homey.
