About Terence Koh

View Profile »

Terence Koh (Chinese-Canadian, b. 1977) maintains an extensive practice, ranging from painting, sculpture, photography, performance, and installation, exploring topics with queer, punk, and pornographic sensibilities. For this reason, Koh has frequently been associated with the niche art movement, New Gothic art, which emphasizes darkness and horror within pop culture. His YouTube series, the “Terrance Koh Show”–in which Koh interviews or is interviewed by guests within his all white home–has featured a number of notable art world characters, including Hans Ulrich Obrist, Marina Abramovic, and the pop icon, Lady Gaga. His obsession with the color white is also notable, for the fact that his monochromatic palette gestures towards a religious meditativeness that symbolizes an inner purity. Koh graduated from the Emily Carr Institute of Design in Vancouver.
