About the speaker

Born in Taiwan, her experiences as an immigrant have shaped her work in areas of migration–examining issues of displacement, arrival, assimilation and the shape of identity in a new country.

Her work has been exhibited in many contexts including museums, galleries, and outdoor spaces.

Her most recent awards in Boston include the Inaugural Prilla Brackett Award through the Davis Art Museum, Greenway Conservancy Lightworks Project, 2018-2019 Artist-In-Residence at the Pao Arts Center, and nationally from the Union of Concerned Scientist for work on environmental displacement. Widely exhibited and collected her work is in many private and public collections.
