I leverage research-based art and multisensory storytelling o support projects that shift dominant narratives and shape public discourse for a more socially just and sustainable future. My trajectory includes socially-engaged digital storytelling projects, experiential technology collaborations, site-specific exhibitions, writing, community engagement as well as fashion design.
I was the featured artist in the July 2017 issue of Duke University Press’ Cultural Politics Journal, have contributed to post at MoMA, Art Newspaper, various anthologies and published “Taparaco Myth,” a trilingual artist book (Chinese, English and Spanish) in 2009.
I have presented performance lectures as part of Asia Contemporary Art Week’s Field Meetings at Asia Society and Venice Biennale 2015; College Art Association; and most recently in Amsterdam at Fondation Perdu I co-labor with academic and cultural institutions to build relationships with underrepresented communities. I often work with students and have presented artist talks at New York University; Columbia University; Hunter College; Concordia University amongst others.
I was the co-convener of “Performing Asian/Americas Converging Movements” workgroup as part of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics Encuentro. This workgroup was founded in 2014 and has met in Montreal and Santiago de Chile. I am a Hemispheric Institute Council Member and 2018 American Arts Incubator lead artist to Ecuador.
