Shen Xin (April - July 2015, visiting artist, CCVA)

Shen Xin (b.1990, Chengdu, China) graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art MFA Media in 2014 and is selected for 2014 Bloomberg New Contemporaries. Shen's practice explores the social position of the artist. She has taken interests in subjects such as the othering of ethnic minorities in relation to aesthetics and economies, the functional performance of cinematic spaces concerning empathy and the potential productivity of the didactic dimensions in new technologies.
