Shu Lea Cheang

Taiwanese artist Shu Lea Cheang is one of the leading multimedia artists dealing in multidisciplinary studies. She is known for her individual approach to the relationship between art and technology. Cheang's art includes not only film, but video, net-based installation, and interface as well. In all of her work, Cheang strives to address social issues through her creative process, especially ethnic stereotyping, the nature and excesses of popular media, institutional and governmental power, race relations, and sexual politics. 35 mm filmmaking has been Cheang’s most recent undertaking . Originally based in New York, Cheang has been a member of the Paper Tiger Television collective since 1981.
Cheang’s first cybernetic installation was Bowling Alley (1995), which was displayed at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN. The installation was a part of a collaboration in which Cheang, along with other Minneapolis artists, sought to challenge ideas of public versus personal art - fine art versus popular art. Brandon, another of Cheang’s web-based projects, was the first web-based work to be commissioned by New York’s Guggenheim museum. Shu Lea Cheang is currently living and working in Paris. (08/09)
