劉文瑄Mia Wen – Hsuan

Mia Wen – Hsuan Liu graduated from San Francisco Art Institute in 2007 and continued her study in CUNY Hunter College at the same year. Liu is very fond of drawing and very keen in discovering all sorts of paper materials from daily lives. Combining both, she has created a series of drawing and installation work that can be viewed from different perspectives. In 2016, Liu was one of the finalists for Sovereign Asian Art Prize, Hong Kong, China. At the same year, she held a solo exhibition A Perhaps Hand at the IT Park, Taipei, Taiwan. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions domestic and abroad, including: Paradi$e Bitch (White Rabbit Gallery, Sydney, 2015), Body/Narraor (Silverlens Gallery, Manila, 2014), A Contemporary Art Exhibition Across the Strait (National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung and National Art Museum of China, Beijing, 2013), Inside (Jendela Art Space/Esplanade, Singapore, 2012), Taiwan Calling: Phantom of Liberty/No Man’s Land (MűcsarnokK/Ludwig Museum, Budapest, Hungary, 2010). Liu was received the Glenfiddich Artists in Residence program, UK, 2011 and Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, France, 2013.
