PERFORMANCE / VISUAL ARTIST (Latinoamericana - New York)
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. She invites audiences to take a fresh look at differences between motion and stillness, animate and inanimate, human and non-human.
She obtained her BA in dance and psychology at Washington University, and Certificate in contemporary dance performance at the Peridance Capezio Center. She has furthered her movement training with other dance (American Dance Festival), yoga asana (Iyengar), and fitness (Strongman) modalities.
Recently, she participated in the EMERGENYC 2020 program, Creative Capital’s taller para artistas profesionales, The Sable Project, and the NYFA Immigrant Artist Program. Her work has been hosted by Judson Church, New York Live Arts, Governor’s Island, The Exponential Festival, Breaking Ground Festival (AZ), Chashasma (UES), Dixon Place, the Immigrant Artist Biennial fundraiser, to name a few. She has received grants from Dance/NYC, California Arts Council, and The Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
