ABOUT

I-Hua Lee is a curator and visual artist from Taiwan. She holds a master’s degree in Studio Art: Art in Media from New York University. Lee currently works as the Director of Coretronic Culture and Arts Foundation. She was a project manager at artist Cai Guo-Qiang's studio in New York, manager at Taipei Artist Village, and is the founder and chief editor for an independent curatorial journal Chuan Art which was launched in 2011.

 

Lee had engaged body issues, gender roles and performativity in an interdisciplinary art practice. Her work seeks to transgress fixed boundaries of power in society. This involves creating theatrical stages, in which include arranged feminine dresses, bodily expressions and performances.

Lee has exhibited her works in such venues as the Museum of Contemporary Art Studio in Taipei, Apexart and ISE Cultural Foundation in New York, the Newspace Center for Photography in Portland, and the Woman Made Gallery in Chicago. Lee has been the finalist in Flora & Fauna Photography Competition in 2009. Her first artist book Short Conversation was published in 2009, which later was granted by the National Culture and Arts Foundation and exhibited in Garden City Gallery in Taipei. Her latest curatorial project Considerate Creations: Chameleons was exhibited in Taipei and New York City featuring artists who combine roles of artists and art administrators like Lee herself, aiming to explore various dimensions and value judgments in the art industry.
