Dan S. Wang arrived in Los Angeles in 2018 after a half century spent in the Great Lakes region. He makes prints, drawings, photographs, sculptures and other kinds of art. Typography, histories of technology, the political aesthetics of ethno-liberation, the French Revolution, and Chinese-Korean cuisine are the stuff of his obsessions.
His works have been shown in more than fifty shows. He has often worked in artist-run and collaborative situations, both as a founding keyholder of Mess Hall, an experimental cultural space in Chicago, and as an exhibiting artist with solo shows at Woodland Pattern (Milwaukee) and Compound Yellow (Oak Park). Recent projects include commissioned work for Station Museum (Houston) and Asian Arts Initiative (Philadelphia). A Ragbox of Overstood Grammars, a retrospective of eighty-plus letterpress prints, is on display in 2020 at Fonderie Darling (Montreal).
This event is being held in conjunction with the exhibition Our Oppressions are Connected, September 18—October 18, 2020
Documents of Resistance—Our Oppressions Are Connected is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council
