The Department of Painting + Printmaking presents a visiting artist lecture by Catalina Ouyang on Tuesday, January 30 at 12:00 P.M. at the Murry N. DePillars Building, Fishbowl Room 301 (1000 West Broad St., Richmond, VA, 23220).



Catalina Ouyang is a sculptor, writer, and interdisciplinary artist whose practice spans themes of desire, subjugation, race, gender, resistance, healing, and intersectionality. Ouyang’s practice is an act of searching, whether through myth, oral histories, or literature, consistently disrupting the ‘normativity’ of hetero-patriarchy, desire, and identification. Ouyang’s work is visually striking in their use of both organic and inorganic media that often relate directly to the body, from carved wood, to concrete, to bacteria and yeast.

Catalina Ouyang’s solo exhibitions include: White Male Ally at Lyles & King (New York, NY), cunt waifu at Lyles & King (New York, NY), it has always been the perfect instrument at Knockdown Center (Queens, NY); marrow at Make Room (Los Angeles, CA); fish mystery in the shift horizon at Rubber Factory (New York, NY); blood in D minor at Selena Gallery (Brooklyn, NY); and an elegy for Marco at the Millitzer Gallery (St. Louis, MO). Ouyang’s work has been included in group exhibitions at François Ghebaly Gallery (Los Angeles, CA), BRIC (Brooklyn, NY), Helena Anrather (New York, NY), fffriedrich (Frankfurt, Germany), like a little disaster (Polignano a Mare, Italy), Anonymous Gallery (Mexico City, Mexico), projects+gallery (St. Louis, Missouri), No Place (Columbus, Ohio), Field Projects (New York, NY), Gallery 400 (Chicago, IL), and others. Ouyang has attended residencies at Shandaken: Storm King (New Windsor, NY), the NARS Foundation (Brooklyn, NY), OBRAS (Evoramonte, Portugal), and the Atlantic Center for the Arts (New Smyrna Beach, FL), with residencies forthcoming at the Vermont Studio Center and MASS MoCA. Ouyang is a 2020-21 Studio Artist at Smack Mellon (Brooklyn, NY). Ouyang has received awards from the Foundation of Contemporary Arts, the Puffin Foundation, the Santo Foundation, Real Art Ways, and the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation. Ouyang received an MFA from Yale University and is based in New York
