AMT Visiting Artists Lecture Series: Amy Cheung

6:15 p.m.

Amy Cheung lives and works in Hong Kong. She earned a BA in history of art and fine art at Goldsmith's College and her MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, University of London. Since graduation, she has initiated numerous city interventions and large-scale public art projects in the UK and abroad. Her work shows a compassionate response to the human condition in a poetic and political yet inconclusive manner. Cheung was named one of Beck's New Contemporaries in the UK and was awarded the UNESCO-Aschberg Prize awarded by the International Fund for the Promotion of Culture. She represented Hong Kong at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007 and received the Outstanding Young Artist Award (Visual Arts) from the Hong Kong Arts Development Council in the same year. In 2010, she was awarded a Lee Hysan Foundation Fellowship by the Asian Cultural Council.

The Visiting Artists Lecture Series is sponsored by the School of Art, Media, and Technology (AMT) at Parsons The New School for Design. The lecture series, organized by Coco Fusco, director of intermedia initiatives at AMT, invites renowned artists from across the globe to give free public presentations each Wednesday.
