Chang Yuchen works in an interdisciplinary manner – writing as weaving, drawing as translation, teaching as hospitality, commerce as social experiment (see Use Value) and publishing as a dandelion spreading its seeds. By constantly entering and exiting each medium, she strolls against the category of things, the labor division among people. Yuchen was a recipient of Kahn Mason SIP Fellowship, Poetry Project Curatorial Fellowship, Huayu Youth Award Grand Jury Prize, Ruth and Harold Chenven Foundation Grant and Lumiarts Fellowship. She has shown/performed her work at UCCA, Para Site, Taikwun Contemporary, Abrons Art Center, Artists Space, Assembly Room, etc. She was an artist in residence at NARS x Governors Island Satellite Residency, MASS MoCA, Museum of Art and Design, Textile Art Center, among others. Yuchen has written for publications including Randian, Heichi Magazine, Press and Fold, Art in Print and more.
