Moon-Kyoung Melody Cho (she/her) is an aspiring curator and arts programmer whose passion is rooted in her experience as a 1.5-generation East Asian immigrant and settler in the land now known as Canada. She is most interested in works that invite reflection upon the ways in which different identities relate to and affect one another; open up conversations that question current systems and processes; and seek to bridge new relations. She hopes to support providing space for such contemplations and conversations as she continues in her paths through contemporary arts and cultural scenes academically and professionally.

Melody holds an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Visual and Critical Studies from OCAD University, and she has completed specialized training in curatorial studies, collections management, and exhibition design through the Museum and Gallery Studies postgraduate program at Georgian College. Melody worked with the Biennial in advance of, and throughout, the 2022 iteration as the Exhibitions and Programming Assistant. Now pursuing a Master’s in Art History and a Curatorial Practice Diploma at York University, she is completing her placement with TBA as Programs Assistant this fall.
