Artists in Person!
Jennifer Chan works with video, performance, and web-based media. She makes deliberately kitsch remix videos as a form of social commentary on art and gender after the Internet. Chan has had solo exhibitions at the Marshall McLuhan Salon in the Embassy of Canada in Berlin for Transmediale 2013 (Germany), Vox Populi (Philadelphia) and VideoFag (Toronto). Her work recently showed Moving Image (London), Eastern Bloc (Montreal), Trinity Square Video (Toronto), Brooklyn International Festival of Performance Art (Brooklyn), Future Gallery (Berlin), Abandon Normal Devices Festival (Manchester), Interstate Projects (New York City), and Images Festival (Toronto).
She is a recipient of the Mississauga Art Awards for Emerging Visual Talent in 2008. Chan has presented on her work at Whitechapel Gallery (London, UK) and Hyperallergic’s tumblr art symposium (New York City, US). Her work has appeared on Rhizome, Furtherfield and ArtForum. She has a HBA in Communications, Culture, Information Technology from University of Toronto and a MFA in Art Video from Syracuse University. Chan was born in Ottawa and raised in Hong Kong. She currently lives and works in Chicago, IL.
In this evening’s program you can expect to see feminist identities on the net, post internet art practices, juvenile masculinity, consumer culture, and of course sex, love, and pain. Don’t miss it!
