Join CounterPulse & Artspan for a reception for works by miss TANGQ On view in the CounterPulse gallery Nov 7 – Jan 7, 2018. About the artist: MissTANGQ is a Chinese-American multi-media artist and first-generation mystic-nerd. She is deeply inspired by the hyphenated experience and explores this through mask-making, animation, installation, and performance art to create cross-sensory and interdisciplinary work. From the many junctions of her identity, she explores the fertile unions where collaboration between seemingly disparate elements can facilitate transformative, emergent experiences. She adapts ancient mythologies for contemporary storytelling and investigates the ways ancestral traditions inform diasporic futurisms. Uniting hand-made and digital mediums, she creates ritual synesthetic experiences for studio art installations and live stage performances.  She uses clay, textiles, archival photographs, organic materials harvested from nature and repurposed objects to create collage prints, animations and wearable sculptures. These works fuse ancient traditions, historical artifacts, animism and cosmology in a way that simultaneously evokes the divine, invites wonder and play while remaining grounded in her cultural heritage. She believes that activating multi-dimensional perception creates new possibilities within our imagination, remixing our past, current, and future to understand ourselves and our potential.  As an emerging artist working professionally since 2014, her work has been featured in numerous galleries and performance spaces in Seattle, New York, the Bay Area, Hawaii, Mexico and China. She has been the recipient of awards granted by Artist Trust, 4Culture and the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture. She completed residencies with the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History and Xucun International Art Commune in China. She recently made her curatorial debut with the Diasporic Alchemy exhibition at SOMArts in San Francisco.  www.misstangq.com About Ar
