Wu Tsang  Film/Video


Wu Tsang’s artistic practice explores states of connectedness and in-betweenness; often this fluidity manifests as collaboration, or in the merging of disciplines, such as performance, moving image, sculpture, and installation. Coming from a filmic background, her work aims to collapse the boundaries between documentary and fiction, as a way to continually question the relationship between liveness (or ‘sociality’) and images. Her projects have been presented at museums and film festivals internationally, including MoMA (New York), Tate Modern (London), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), MCA (Chicago), MOCA (Los Angeles), Martin Gropius Bau (Berlin), Berlinale Film Festival (Berlin), SANFIC (Santiago), Hot Docs Festival (Toronto), and South by Southwest Film Festival (Austin). Her first feature film WILDNESS (2012) premiered at MoMA’s Documentary Fortnight, and her work was also featured in the 2012 Whitney Biennial and “The Ungovernables” New Museum Triennial, 2012 Gwangju Biennial, the 9th Berlin Biennial, and Performa 11 Biennial (New York). She has received grants from Creative Capital, Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation. She was a 2016 Guggenheim Fellow (Film/Video) and is currently shortlisted for the 2018 Hugo Boss Prize.
