PAUL CHAN was born in Hong Kong in 1973 and grew up in Nebraska. He graduated with an MFA in Film, Video and New Media from Bard College in 2002, having earned his BFA in Video Digital Arts at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1996. Chan’s teaching activities include lecturing at the Graduate School of Fine Arts, the University of Pennsylvania; Cooper Union; and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work has been exhibited internationally, including at the 2006 Whitney Biennial; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; MoMA; and the Serpentine Gallery, London. Chan’s most recent cycle of work, The 7 Lights, is currently on view at The New Museum, NY.
Chan has worked with, among others, the Teamsters, Indymedia, and the Nobel Peace Prize-nominated group Voices in the Wilderness and their campaign against the war (and now occupation) in Iraq. In December of 2002 he traveled to Baghdad as a member of Voices in the Wilderness. In 2004, Chan collaborated with the collective Friends of William Blake to produce The People's Guide to the Republican National Convention, a free foldout map detailing everything a protester needed to get in or out of the way during the RNC in New York. This past fall, Chan worked with with Creative Time and the Classical Theatre of Harlem in re-staging Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot in New Orleans.$artistdetail?CHANP
