Linda Huang is the secondary grantee of The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Greater China Research Grant 2017–18.
Linda Huang’s research project, “Re-imagining Post-socialist Corporeality: Technology, Body, and Nation in Post-1989 Chinese Art,” addresses the influences of information fantasy in the post-Mao era on the conceptual development of Chinese media art. Her study centres on themes including post-Mao technocracy, the social and political connotations of media art, the politics of “human,” media practices engaged with the body, and artistic resistance to a depoliticised cultural protocol in post-reform China.
Linda Huang is a PhD candidate in art history at The Ohio State University. She received the Mudrak Fund for Dissertation Research in 2016. She has held curatorial positions at FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art.
