Dan S. Wang
Local Artist Residency
18th Street Campus
Dan S. Wang arrived in Los Angeles in 2018 after fifty years spent in the Great Lakes region. He makes prints, drawings, photographs, sculptures and other kinds of art. Typography, histories of technology, the political aesthetics of ethno-liberation, the geographies of everyday life, the French Revolution, and Chinese-Korean cuisine are the stuff of his late night obsessions.
His works have been shown in more than fifty shows, in spaces ranging from museums to restrooms, including a restroom of a museum. He has often worked in artist-run and collaborative situations, both as a founding keyholder of Mess Hall, an experimental cultural space in Chicago, and as an exhibiting artist with solo shows at Woodland Pattern (Milwaukee) and Compound Yellow (Oak Park). Recent projects include commissioned work for Station Museum (Houston) and Asian Arts Initiative (Philadelphia).
His writings have been published internationally in book collections, museum catalogs, and in dozens of artists publications.
