Karen Wong's POV is represented in selected art and impact experiences on Tape.
Hey, I’m Karen Wong. I am good at cutting through the bullshit and finding beauty. I’m a shapeshifter — creative director, talent scout, and educator are all part of my arsenal. So many wickedly awesome artists are hiding in plain sight, and prioritizing them is my lodestar. 
I spent 15 years at NYC’s New Museum in senior leadership positions and manifested activist entrepreneurship as the founder of IdeasCity, NEW INC, and ONX Studio. These three initiatives redefined the contemporary art museum by serving an inclusive community of creatives and are heralded as blueprints of what a 21st-century museum can be. 
I’ve developed novel partnerships with agencies Anomaly and Droga5; brands Apple, Audi, Complex, Google, New York magazine, Nokia Bell Labs, Refinery29, and Vice; and foundations Knight, Neon, Onassis, and Simons. 
I’m synthesizing my experience and love for visual arts to be part of a movement that creates more channels for artists across our nation. Let’s go!
