About the Artist:
Frank WANG Yefeng is a transdisciplinary artist and researcher based in New York, NY. Working with multiple media including video and animation, sculpture, new media installation, and writing, he explores a self-becoming in relation to the ideas of “in-betweenness” and “disidentification” in the digital milieu. Yefeng addresses the “in-between” habitats as productive spaces of cultural transformation for challenging dominant cultural genealogies and entrenched identity paradigms. Yefeng received an MFA in Art and Technology Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011. He has participated in numerous venues internationally, including the BRIC Biennial, the OCAT Biennial, and the Wrong Biennale. His projects have been exhibited in the Armory Show, CCS Bard Hessel Museum of Art, Gasworks London, Pylon Lab, Jeju Museum of Contemporary Art, Shenzhen OCAT Contemporary Art Terminal, Hyundai Motorstudio Beijing, Shanghai K11 Museum, Duolun Museum of Modern Art, Vanguard Gallery, and others. In addition, Yefeng has been awarded solo exhibitions at Smack Mellon and The New York Art Residency and Studios (NARS) Foundation, artist in residencies at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP), and NARS Foundation, as well as Fellowships at MacDowell, Asia Art Archive in America and the Vermont Studio Center among others.
