Coyote Park (he/they) is a 2Spirit, Indigenous (Yurok) Korean-American transgender artist based in Los Angeles. Park was raised in the Kingdom of Hawai’i, on the island of Oahu, and their photography often documents their chosen family in Hawai’i, as well as across Turtle Island. It often depicts interpersonal relationships with their kin in foliage and interior spaces. Utilizing self portraiture as a mode of collaboration, Parks images share moments with friends and intimate partners. Park’s practice centers queer love, community, and trans futures. Their work is a pathway to healing and dreaming up new worlds.
They have exhibited at institutions including the Museum of Sex, NeueHouse, The Koppel Project, and Apuni Space, and their solo exhibition, Coyote Park: I Love You Like Mirrors Do will be on view at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art from February 2-June 2022. Their published works include the poetry, short essay, and prose collection Heart of a Shapeshifter (GenderFail, 2021), and they are currently in the pre-production process of their feature film “Destiny in Sedona,” directed by Tee Jaehyung Park, in development with the IllumiNative Producers Program in partnership with Netflix.
