Jes Fan

J. Fan: UCLA Department of Art Lecture

  • This is a past program

The artist J. Fan lives and works in Hong Kong and Brooklyn. Originally trained in glass making, Fan expanded his practice to encompass diverse mediums and approaches. From videos to sculptures, his practice examines the intersection of biology and identity in relation to the materiality of the gendered and racialized body. Fan has exhibited internationally and has participated in the Venice Biennale, New Museum Triennial, Liverpool Biennale, Sydney Biennale, and Socrates Annual. In 2023, he will present a second solo show with Empty Gallery.
