Cao Fei

Born in 1978 in Guangzhou, Cao Fei is one of the most innovative Chinese artists to have emerged on the international scene. Currently living in Beijing, she mixes social commentary, popular aesthetics, references to Surrealism, and documentary conventions in her films and installations. Her works reflect on the rapid and chaotic changes that are occurring in Chinese society today.

Cao Fei’s works were showcased at a number of international biennales and triennales, including Shanghai Biennale, Moscow Biennale, Taipei Biennale, the 15th & 17th Biennale of Sydney, Istanbul Biennale, Yokohama Triennale, and the 50th, 52nd & 56th Venice Biennale. She also exhibited her works and projects at Serpentine Gallery and Tate Modern in London; New Museum, Guggenheim Museum, and MoMA in New York; Fondation Louis Vuitton, Palais de Tokyo, and Centre Pompidou in Paris.

Cao Fei’s recent projects include the Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative at Guggenheim Museum New York, solo show at Tai Kwun Contemporary in Hong Kong and retrospective at K21 Dusseldorf. Upcoming solo show will take place at Centre Pompidou in June.

She was a nominee for the Future Generation Art Prize 2010 and the finalist of Hugo Boss Prize 2010. She received the Chinese Contemporary Art Award (CCAA) Best Young Artist Award in 2006 and Best Artist Award in 2016. She was also the recipient of Piedra de Sal Award at Cuenca Biennale in 2016.
