Tina Wang, 2020
Tina Wang is a performance artist based in New York and California. Identity, fragility, and resilience are key themes in her work, which draws on her experience as a Taiwanese citizen raised in Latin America. By immersing the body around the objects of menial labor, she challenges assumptions about where these objects belong, who belongs with them, and their relationship to living bodies. Her work has been supported by institutions such as Dance/NYC, California Arts Council, The Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Judson Church, New York Live Arts, Governor’s Island, The Exponential Festival, Maiden LA, and The Immigrant Artist Biennial. During Emerge 2020, she was researching ways to expand her toolbox as an artist beyond movement and sound based mediums.
