Yue Xu was born and raised in Guangzhou, China, and is currently living in Chicago. Works include inflatable, video installation, drawings, and artists’ books. Xu’s practices focus on the habitual surroundings and objects of daily life, and observing the serendipitous and yet absurd surprises of their occurrence is her interest. The work creates temporary space by using political methods underneath to discuss the possibility under the different power structures, but with a playful element. Xu earned her MFA in the School of Art Institute of Chicago in 2021.
