ellen y. chang is a curator, filmmaker, and PhD student in video art/installation and cinema at the University of Washington.

In her academic research, she has been exploring the transactional encounter between contemporary Taiwanese video art/installation, cinema, and popular culture as a process of aesthetic decolonization. Her recent work on sound and audio walks sees this relationship as borne out of the island’s complex historical relationship with China. As a simultaneous film scholar and art curator/practitioner, ellen is moving towards more engaged, sensitive and practical understandings of how multimedia art reflects the (re-)occurring themes of everyday politics across international geographies.

ellen is currently interning with the curatorial department of the Seattle Art Museum for the Asian Art Museum’s reopening exhibition in 2019.
