SELECTED WORK               ABOUT

Frank Chang (b. 1979, New York) is a multi-disciplinary artist who employs and re-frames ordinary or familiar visual forms in order to examine the entangled and complex interrelationships between climate, social, and cultural issues. Chang’s work spans a variety of mediums, including works on paper, sculpture, installation, and performance, but each body of work is based upon a consistent methodology in which recognizable forms—from the vernacular to the historical—act as springboards for deeper investigations into these issues.

His work has been exhibited at Dartmouth College, the Torrance Art Museum, Museum of Jurassic Technology, LA Design Center, Woodbury University, and Virginia Commonwealth University, among others. In 2015, he was selected as a participant in the 2nd Dartmouth College Alumni Biennial exhibition. He has also exhibited site-specific work recently at High Desert Test Sites in Wonder Valley, CA and alongside a stream in South Windham, VT.

He was formerly co-director of Monte Vista Projects in Los Angeles, and he was a contributor to the book Dispatches and Directions: On Artist-Run Organizations in Los Angeles and to the journal MATERIAL. He received his BA from Dartmouth College and his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts.
