Jacqueline Kiyomi Gork’s (b.1982, Los Angeles) hybrid practice combines work in sound installation, sculpture, and performance with the aim of reconfiguring the traditional hierarchies between audience, performer, and architecture. She studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and researched the history of acoustics and computer music at Stanford University.

Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Empty Gallery, Hong Kong (2021, 2017); 356 Mission, Los Angeles (2017); The Lab, San Francisco (2016); and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco (2016). She has participated in group exhibitions at Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (Made in LA 2020); SculptureCenter, New York (2019); San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2017) and V-A-C Foundation, Moscow (2018). She is a recipient of a 2021 Art + Technology Lab Grant from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Her second exhibition with Empty Gallery is currently on view, and her first presentation with François Ghebaly, New York opens in January 2022.
