Hsu Chia-Wei

  • Born 1983 in Taichung, Taiwan.
  • Based in Taipei, Taiwan.

A graduate of Le Fresnoy National Studio for Contemporary Arts in France, Chia-Wei Hsuʼs work as an artist, filmmaker and curator merges the languages of film and contemporary art and unearths the complex mechanisms behind the production of images. Through his artistic practice, Hsu weaves connections between humans, materials and places that have been overlooked or omitted in conventional historical narratives.

Hsu has had solo exhibitions at Liang Gallery (2021; Taipei, Taiwan), Tung Chung Art Award: Giant Panda, Deer, Malayan Tapir and East India Company, Museum of National Taipei University of Education (2019; Taiwan), MAM Screen 009: Hsu Chia-Wei, Mori Art Museum (2018; Tokyo, Japan). He has participated in group shows such as the Singapore Biennale (2019), A Tale of Hidden Histories, Eye Filmmuseum (2019; Amsterdam, the Netherlands), and the Biennials of Shanghai, Gwangju, Busan and Sydney (2018). He is also the curator of Taiwan International Video Art Exhibition, Hong-Gah Museum (2018; Taipei, Taiwan), and a co-curator of the 2019 Asian Art Biennial, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (Taichung) together with Ho Tzu Nyen.
