Shuyi Cao is a New York-based artist whose practice explores alchemical approaches to object making and knowledge production through archeological speculation and ecological fiction. Her mixed- medium installations synthesize various organic and inorganic materials, natural and artificial processes. Combining hand-crafted sculptures and digital artifacts, moving images, and sounds, the assemblage suggests heterogeneous material temporality. Her work has been widely exhibited in China and the U.S.A, including Today Art Museum, West Bund Art & Design Fair, Ming Contemporary Art Museum, Gallery Weekend Beijing, New York UrbanGlass, Chambers Fine Art, Fou Gallery, Shin Gallery, A.I.R. 13th Biennale, among others. She is the recipient of the Today Art Museum Wang Shikuo Nomination Award, The New School Tishman Environment and Design Center Research Grant. She is a visiting assistant professor at Pratt Institute and lectures at Parsons School of Design. She has presented at Pioneer Works, NEW INC New Museum, Power Station of Art, the University of Applied Arts Vienna, the City University of Hong Kong, and has published at the International Symposium on Machine Learning and Art (ISCMA) and Technoetic Arts Journal. She received a Bachelor of Laws from Fudan University in Shanghai (2013), an M.A. in Public Administration from Fudan University (2016), and an M.F.A. from Parsons School of Design, New York (2018).
