About the Artist:
Frank WANG Yefeng (b.1984, Shanghai, China) is a transdisciplinary artist, researcher, art educator and exhibition facilitator based in Providence, RI, and New York, NY. Working with multiple media including video and animation, sculpture, installation, and writing, Yefeng’s practice blends playful moving images with philosophical probes in both digital and physical realms. His work explores a self-becoming in relation to the ideas of “in-betweenness” and “disidentification,” which is coherent with his experience as a transnational individual. Yefeng addresses the “in-between” habitats as productive spaces of cultural transformation for challenging dominant cultural genealogies and entrenched identity paradigms.
Yefeng received his MFA in Art and Technology Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011. His work has been exhibited in numerous venues internationally, including CCS Bard Hessel Museum of Art, Annandale on Hudson, NY, US; BRIC Biennial, Brooklyn, NY, US; Royal College of Art, London, UK; Pylon Lab, Dresden, Germany; Jeju Museum of Contemporary Art, Jeju, Korea; OCAT Contemporary Art Terminal, Shenzhen, China; Hyundai Motorstudio, Beijing, China; K11 Museum, Shanghai, China; Duolun Museum of Modern Art, Shanghai, China; Vanguard Gallery, Shanghai, China, and others. Yefeng also holds a fellowship at Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT, and has participated in Artist in Residencies at International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP), Brooklyn, NY, and New York Art Residency & Studios Foundation (NARS), Brooklyn, NY.
