The Taipei Cultural Center in New York is pleased to announce that Chang Wen-Woan has been selected as the recipient of the prestigious three-month residency grant at the renowned Triangle Arts Association (TAA) in New York. This residency, generously supported by Taiwan’s Ministry of Culture, is a significant opportunity for Chang to further enrich her artistic journey. She is scheduled to participate in the program from March to May 2024.

Chang Wen-Woan, a talented artist who earned her master's degree at the Taipei National University of the Arts, boasts an impressive artistic background. Her accolades include winning the 2022 YAHON Contemporary Art Creation Award and securing first place in the 1st and 2nd Contemporary Sculpture Lih Pao Prize. Chang has exhibited her artworks in solo and group shows globally, including notable exhibitions in Taiwan, Korea, and the US.

With a focus on sculpture, Chang skillfully navigates the interplay between hands-on execution and conceptual thinking. Proficient in working with diverse materials such as stone, resin, and metal, she also enjoys experimenting with painting materials, creating artist books, and exploring various artistic mediums. Chang's artistic inspiration is drawn from everyday life and art history, and she has a unique ability to organize and categorize information within these realms, resulting in thought-provoking creations.

Expressing her excitement about the upcoming residency, Chang shares, "I'm thrilled to be able to communicate in the language of art with fellow artists, curators, and enthusiasts from different countries, and to share my creations while simultaneously receiving feedback from audiences of various backgrounds. As I have never participated in a residency before, I want to start with a place that I am somewhat familiar with - New York. This will be a meaningful expansion for me as an artist, with the hope of accumulating valuable residency experiences with the Triangle Arts Association and continuing on to the next, unknown but undoubtedly worthwhile, journey."
