Carolyn Park (b. 1989, Los Angeles) is a writer interested in contemporary art exhibitions, translation, and Lacanian psychoanalysis. She graduated magna cum laude from NYU with a double major in Spanish/Latin American Literature and Art History. As an undergraduate student, she began researching the Mass Media Art Group of Buenos Aires and its intersections with New York proto-conceptual artists in 1966, under the supervision of art historians Julia Robinson and Edward Sullivan. After graduating, she worked as an archival assistant at the Dwan Gallery Archive and as a curatorial intern at Artists Space.
Gradually becoming conscious of the institutional frameworks that limited her art historical inquiries, she sought Lacanian psychoanalysis to confront deeply rooted structural issues guided by her symptoms and her research on Oscar Masotta. She participated in work groups and seminars led by analyst Robert Groome (P.L.A.C.E.) from 2013 to 2017.
Currently, she is pursuing a certificate in Spanish Translation through the University of California San Diego and attending seminars at L'école lacanienne de psychanalyse in Mexico City.
