Wu Tsang


    Wu Tsang (b. 1982, Worcester) currently lives and works in Zürich. Tsang received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2004 and an MFA from the University of California at Los Angeles in 2010.

    Tsang is a filmmaker and performance artist who combines documentary and narrative techniques with fantastical detours into the imaginary in works that explore hidden histories, marginalized narratives, and the act of performing itself. Tsang re-imagines racialized, gendered representations beyond the visible frame to encompass the multiple and shifting perspectives through which we experience the social realm. Her films include We hold where study (2017), Girl Talk (2015), Damelo Todo (Gimme Everything) (2010), and Shape of a Right Statement (2008) among others. Her works have been featured in Gropius Bau, Berlin; MoMA, New York; Tate Modern, London; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Kunsthalle Münster, Münster in Westfalen, Germany; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Chicago; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam among others.
