Frank Fu Projects.png

Born in Inner Mongolia, China, Frank Fu is a contemporary artist. His work challenges the white box setting of galleries and museums. His endurance performances and interventions examine his (non-)identity as an artist, often commenting on the politics of the art world. He has conducted performances at Venice Biennale, Documenta, Sydney Biennale, Asian Contemporary Art Fair (New York), Asian Contemporary Art Week (New York), Rubin Museum of Art (New York), Centre Pompidou (Paris), Louvre Museum and shown films at Locarno Film Festival, Vision Du Réel (Switzerland) and Transcinema (Peru). Frank Fu has been featured on television networks and in publications such as NHK (Japan), CCTV4 (China), ARTCO (Taiwan), The National Business Review, New Zealand Herald, New Zealand Listener Magazine, Frieze Magazine, and TateShots. Frank Fu is the founder and Head of School of F.U. INSTITUTE.

付尧 Frank Fu 当代艺术家,出生于呼伦贝尔大草原。奥克兰大学美学艺术硕士,美国南加州大学客座讲师,但尼丁美院终身艺术家。他主要运用行为和影像进行创作。作品主题包括艺术界的政治,艺术家与展馆,策展人以及和群众的关系,再到艺术家的生存状态等。正如在巴黎蓬皮杜美术馆的那次介入式行为,他把性与革命在世界艺术大师杰作的面前诙谐幽默的展现出来,致使巴黎特警出动,强行中断他对艺术殿堂的性的质问与做爱的挑战。他的作品曾先后在威尼斯双年展,卡塞尔文献展,悉尼双年展,亚洲当代艺术博览会(纽约),亚洲当代艺术周(纽约),鲁宾艺术博物馆(纽约),蓬皮杜艺术中心(巴黎),卢浮宫,瑞士洛迦诺电影节等地展出。他还是FU艺术机构的创始人兼校长。
