Christy Chan is an interdisciplinary artist working across video, narrative film, installation, performance, public art interventions and social practice.
She was a 2022 recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship Award in Fine Art and the founder of Dear America, a mobile, guerrilla 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 Art Museum in California; Wassaic Project x NY State Council of the Arts in New York; Film Independent in Los Angeles; Utah Museum of Contemporary Art in Salt Lake City; 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.
