One of the most widely recognized voices of her generation, new media artist Cao Fei has presented works in the 50th, 52nd, and 56th Venice Biennales, and has held solo exhibitions at Centre Pompidou, MoMA PS1 and Serpentine Gallery.
She’ll be joining RADII for our latest CROSS x TALK event live on Instagram on Friday 20 November at 10:30 AM China time (Thursday 19, 10:30 PM EST) to discuss digital art and the future of our world. To join, follow @RADII.China and @cao_fei on Instagram.
Born in Guangzhou in 1978, Cao came of age during a period when globalization and modernization were drastically reshaping the physical, emotional and psychic landscapes of the Chinese people. Her work often critiques our increased reliance on technology, while simultaneously celebrating the new identities and subcultures it has produced.
