Casey Tang/Tang Zi Hao/唐子豪
While tapping into diverse disciplines including ecology, music, and narrative, Tang puts actions, experiences, objects and installations into works that create liminal areas that re-contextualize and compare systems, information, histories, and paradigms. Recently, Tang has become interested in abstractions of form and narrative as a means of creating disassociation from cultural norms and incorporating non-western worldviews—such as humor and contradictions found in Zen Koans and ritual clowns—and cultural outputs to create and critique new, hybrid worldviews. Casey Tang has a BFA from SUNY Purchase (2006) and has exhibited in the US, Europe, and Asia.
He's participated in "Catalyst", Queens Museum, “CAFAM Future” Exhibition: Observer-Creator at the Central Academy of Fine Art Museum, Beijing, Urban Forest Lab Project at Socrates Sculpture Park, Long Island City, NY, had a solo exhibition at Charpa Gallery, Valencia, Spain, solo book project, First Sounds, Booklyn, Brooklyn. He is a recipient of the 2013 New Vision Award from He Xiangning Art Museum, Shenzhen, China, and the 2015 Queens Museum/Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists. His work is in the collection of Stanford University, the Inelcom foundation (selected by Vicente Todolí) and He Xiangning museum.
