Wen Liu’s art is a collection of reactions to the environments and objects encountered to build her sense of security coming from a foreign land. Questions that drive her work include: What is temporary and what is permanent? What is your place in this temporality and permanence? How do you deal with public recollection versus private memories?
She is a DCASE Individual Artists Program Grantee for 2018 and 2019 and attended residencies at Vermont Studio Center, MASS MoCA, and ACRE and is currently in the Center Program at Hyde Park Art Center. Her work has been exhibited in the National Grand Theater in Beijing, China; 6018/North, Zhou B Art Center, Manifold Gallery in Chicago; and most recently at ACRE Projects.
