Hsu Chia-Wei


Born in Taichung, 1983. Lives and works in Taipei.
A graduate from Le Fresnoy National Studio for Contemporary Arts in France, Chia-Wei Hsu’s work as an artist, filmmaker and curator merges the languages of film and contemporary art and unearths the complex mechanisms behind the production of images. Through his artistic practice, Hsu weaves connections between humans, materials and places that have been overlooked or omitted in conventional historical narratives. Hsu has had solo exhibitions at Liang Gallery (2021; Taipei), Museum of National Taipei University of Education (2019; Taipei) and Mori Art Museum (2018; Tokyo). He has participated in group shows such as the Busan Biennial (2022), Aichi Triennale (2022), Asia Pacific Triennale (2021), Singapore Biennale (2019), A Tale of Hidden Histories in Eye Filmmuseum (2019; Amsterdam), and the Biennials of Shanghai, Gwangju, Busan and Sydney (2018). He is also the curator of Taiwan International Video Art Exhibition at Hong-Gah Museum (2018; Taipei) and Asian Art Biennial at National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (2019; Taichung).
