Shu Lea Cheang
Nagle Artist in Residence

A net art pioneer, Shu Lea Cheang is an artist, filmmaker, and networker engaging with various art media and film formats including installation, performance, public art, video, feature-length film, and mobile web serial. Her project BRANDON (1998–99) was the first web art commissioned and collected by the Guggenheim Museum in New York. From homesteading cyberspace in the 1990s to her recent retreat to the BioNet zone, Cheang crafts her own science fiction genre of new queer cinema. Cheang represented Taiwan with a solo exhibition 3x3x6 at the Venice Biennale 2019. Her current projects in development UNBORN0x9 (a hacking performance) and UKI (an interruptive cinema) are funded by DICRéAM, CNC (Centre National du Cinéma) in France.

The Nagle Artist in Residence at SMFA at Tufts brings international artists into the school’s graduate community for short-term residencies.
