Astra Huimeng Wang

Wang Huimeng (b. Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, China) received her B.E. in Bio-Medical Engineering from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics and M.F.A. in Studio Art from San Francisco Art Institute. Drawing upon research on a systematic body of texts and literary traditions, her practice spans sculpture, installation, performance, video, and the Internet, dealing with issues such as the shifting of cultural identities and Neo-orientalism.

Selected exhibitions and performances include those at Make Room Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and Pennsylvania State University. A solo show of Wang Huimeng's work will be opening at Make Room in Spring 2022.
