Ying Hung
Born in Hong Kong
Lives and works in New York, U.S.A
Ying Hung graduated from the Fine Arts Department of the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1980. The artist received her MFA from the Pratt Institute in 1987 and has since continued living and working in New York.
The cross-cultural experiences Hung has accumulated throughout her life have played a crucial role in forming her unique perspectives and nurturing her artistic career. Her creative process is a continuous exploration of culture and identity, and her art approaches sociocultural issues of past and present with an intersectional attunement that provides the viewer with relatable entries into the greater political discourse.
Hung uses techniques of repetition, juxtaposition, and re-contextualization to invoke new narrative or interpretive possibilities. Sometimes, she employs the comic pictorial language of manipulating proportions in order to create a surreal visual experience.
Hung has exhibited in New York, Taiwan, and China. She participated in the Art Biennale hosted by the Hong Kong Arts Centre in 1983, and her works have been shown in major museums in New York, including MoMA PS1 (1990) and the Bronx Museum of the Arts (2000). Since 1994, Hung has also held both group and solo exhibitions in major museums and galleries in Taipei, such as Turning Gazes: Woman and Arts in Dialogue (2013) at the Juming Museum and Mind and Matter: Derivation — Ying Hung Solo Exhibition (2019) at Tina Keng Gallery.
