Linda Z. Hang/Way Wza (b. 1986, Southside Stockton, California) is a multidisciplinary artist who works in photography, painting, sculpture, textiles, book design, artists’ books and performance. Weaving distant cultural ingredients, she gathers esoteric patterns from the structures of her research. In composing these tapestries, what emerges is an itinerant discovery of form and dynamism, inherent and persistent in all complexities of matter regardless of the origination.
Hang’s projects have exhibited at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in Los Angeles (2013–present), MoMA PS1 (2013–present), Tokyo Art Book Fair (2014) and at NADA with Printed Matter, Inc., in New York (2016). Her work is held in private and public collections, including the Carl A. Kroch Library, RMC at Cornell University (NY) and the Marjorie G. and Carl W. Stern Book Arts & Special Collections Center at the San Francisco Public Library (CA). Hang studied at the Art Institute of San Francisco, California, and currently lives and works in New York City.
