Christy Chan: Who’s Coming to Save You?

Sep 30, 2022 – Jan 14, 2023

Christy Chan, Video Still from As Seen on TV, 2014

Christy Chan is a Virginia-born, San Francisco Bay Area-based artist who uses video, installation, performance, and social practice to question the everyday power structures that uphold white supremacy in the United States. She is a 2022 recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship Award in Fine Art and the founder of Dear America, a guerilla public art project that projects the art works of Asian-American artists on to high-rise buildings in urban areas in response to an epidemic of anti-Asian violence. Chan’s work has been exhibited at YBCA and Mills College Art Museum in California; Wassaic Project x NY State Council of the Arts in New York; Film Independent in Los Angeles; Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha; and on NPR, among others. She has been awarded residencies and support from Montalvo Arts Center, California Arts Council, Kala Art Institute, Berkeley Film Foundation, SFFILM and other institutions. Her public art project, Fainting Couch, will be travelling the United States in 2023.
