Yi Xin Tong

Assistant Professor


Yi Xin Tong creates object, video, installation, poetry, and sound to understand himself, to study human culture’s dynamic relationship with nature, and through playful and seemingly fortuitous ways to instigate noise to societal beliefs in value, decency, and rationality. Tong’s work has been exhibited at Brooklyn BRIC Biennial, Göteborg Biennial, OCAT Biennale, Palais de Tokyo, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Today Art Museum, chi K11 art museum, Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Power Station of Art, and Hessel Museum of Art. In 2021, he won the inaugural Choi Foundation Prize for Contemporary Art.
