Xiaoyue Zhang is a Chinese interdisciplinary artist and creative producer working at the intersection of performance, dance, photography, and film. Her works center on exploring the porosity of ideological constructs through the lens of the body and bodily experience. She collaborates with bodies, others, and her own, to access the archived experience of tension present in identities that exist in between history and narrative, the collective and personal, and language and bodies. In her process, Xiaoyue seeks the transforming, transgressing and healing potential through birthing hybridities of mediums, disciplines, and cultures.
Her works have been shown at multiple significant venues and institutions locally and nationally, including producing and production management works at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, The Getty Villa, The Huntington Gardens; directing and video works at LA Performance Practice, REDCAT New Original Works Festival, Hollywood Fringe Festival, Guangdong Museum of Art (China) and Short Film Corner of the 2018 Cannes International Film Festival. She has worked with organizations such as CAP at UCLA, Pieter Performance Space, CalArts Center for New Performance, and The Industry, and has been serving as an Associate Producer at the Orchard Project(NY).
She received her MFA in Creative Producing and Management at California Institute of the Arts and is currently living in New York.
