Yongqi Tang Chinese
Yongqi’s works examine the fluidity of our self-images and relate to the broader human experience of the ambiguousness of identities such as gender, sexuality, and nationality. Through blending allegories, myths, and symbols from both Western and Chinese Classicist traditions, she creates a playful in-betweenness to reinterpret the categories into which we are born to rearticulate the discourse around them.
Yongqi Tang was born in 1997 in China and lives in Seattle, WA. She received her MFA in Painting and Drawing (2022), her BA in Painting and Drawing (2019) from the University of Washington in Seattle, WA.
Recent solo exhibitions have been mounted at Jupiter Contemporary in Miami, FL; T293 Gallery in Rome, Italy; and Specialist Gallery in Seattle, WA. She has also been exhibited in numerous group shows such as Cruel Spring at LATITUDE Gallery in New York City, NY (2023); David Zwirner’s Platform Online Viewing Room(2023); Culture II at Strada World in New York City, NY (2022).
She is the recipient of the Bernie Funk Artist Scholarship (2022), the Puget Sound Group of Northwest Artists Scholarship Award (2022), and the Boyer and Elizabeth Bole Gonzales Scholarship for Excellence (2021).
Her art has been covered in numerous outlets, including New American Paintings, All SHE Makes, Maake Magazine, and elsewhere.
