陈秋林 Chen Qiulin


Chen Qiulin (b. 1975) is an emerging artist who is deeply concerned with the impact of urbanization in China. Her practice includes performance, photography, video, installation and most recently sculpture. She combines personal history with themes of demolition, migration, and transformation to express the reality for "ordinary people" living in China today. Born in Hubei Province, Chen Qiulin graduated from the Printmaking Department at the Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts and currently divides her time between Chengdu and Beijing.

Chen Qiulin’s work has been exhibited throughout China and abroad. She is currently preparing for an exhibition at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles and her work will be included in The 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (ATP6), Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia (2009).
