Joyce Yu-Jean Lee, MFA, is an Assistant Professor of Foundation at Pratt Institute. She is a transational Taiwanese-Chinese American visual artist who combines video, sculpture, photography and interactive installation with social practice and institutional critique. Her artwork examines how media, technology and culture shape notions of truth and understanding of the “other.” She is the founder of FIREWALL, a project about Internet censorship, which garnered backlash from Chinese state authorities in 2016.

Joyce has exhibited globally, including at the Austrian Association of Women Artists (VBKÖ), the Oslo Freedom Forum, SCOPE Art Fair, Hong Kong Center for Community Cultural Development, The Delaware Contemporary and Kreeger Museum. Her work has been covered in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Hong Kong Free Press, Huffington Post, Hyperallergic and on BBC Radio. She joined Pratt faculty in 2023 from Marist College, where she previously taught as Assistant Professor of Art and Digital Media.
