Isa Wang is a Massachusetts-based artist whose work focuses on intersecting identities from the lens of American consumerism. With a background in retail, Wang combines handmade and found objects with a commercial design aesthetic to examine the representation of marginalized communities in pop culture. Wang’s practice centers around the possibility of transformation via a mix of mediums and genres. Autobiographical artifacts are juxtaposed against broad marketing imagery, while cultural and gendered boundaries are traversed with performative and interactive elements.
Wang holds a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts / Tufts in Boston and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York, where he was a recipient of the SVA Alumni Scholarship Award, the Art Practice Thesis Project Grant, and the Art Practice Thesis Award.
