Visiting Artists

Artists from around the world will visit CIA for Community Works. From September through November 2014 we welcome Chi-Yu Liao (Taiwan), thanks to a Creative Fusion grant from the Cleveland Foundation. For shorter visits in November we welcome Caroline Woolard (USA) and Maj Hasager (Denmark). Read more about these artists on our Community Works Exhibitions page.

Chi-Yu Liao, a Taiwanese artist who has studied painting and specializes in video installations, will serve a residency at CIA from September 1 through November 30, 2014, thanks to a Creative Fusion grant from the Cleveland Foundation, which brings international artists to Cleveland for extended residencies. As part of her residency, Liao will be working in the Painting and Photography departments, visiting students’ studios and participating in critiques of their work. She will also present public lectures.

In 2008, Liao earned her BFA in fine art and then in 2012, her MFA from the Department of New Media Art from the Taipei National University of the Arts. Liao often explores interpersonal relationships, gender roles and women’s issues, and experiences about her own body. She pays a great deal of attention to fleeting moments in daily life and attempts to catch ineffable feelings that are passed between people.

Recently, her work has explored the communal and cross-cultural aspects that are inherent in food culture. The concept behind these works was brought about by her travels: Liao observed and interviewed people to familiarize herself with what would otherwise be considered different or “exotic.” Liao’s works inhabit a contrived reality that gleans from memories, allegories, and convivial and communal experiences.

Caroline Woolard is an artist and organizer based in Brooklyn, New York. Making sculptures, furniture, and events, Woolard co-creates spaces for critical exchange, forgotten histories, and plausible futures. Her practice is research-based and collaborative. In 2009, Woolard co-founded three organizations to support collaborative cultural production; three long-term infrastructure projects to support short-term artworks: a studio space, a barter network, and Trade School. Woolard’s research includes: the rise of the BFA-MFA-PhD, footnote systems for research-based art, socially engaged failure, compensation in the arts, and incommensurability. Forthcoming writing will focus on a project at MoMA that closed in June, as well as the implications of debt and duration for social practices.

Maj Hasager is a Danish artist currently based in Copenhagen and working predominantly in text, sound, video and photography. She has studied photography and fine art in Denmark, Sweden, and the UK, and she completed her MFA from Malmö Art Academy, Sweden, in 2008.

Her work deals with ideas and notions of power structures, identity, memory, construction of history, architecture and how these are interlinked and interpreted culturally, spatially and through representation. Her artistic approach is research-based and interdisciplinary.

She has exhibited her work internationally both in galleries and in the public realm including Future Movements, Liverpool Biennial (2010); Between Here and Somewhere Else, al-Hoash, al-Kahf gallery and Sakakini Cultural Centre, Jerusalem, Bethlehem & Ramallah (2010); and LOOP Film festival, Barcelona (2008). She is the recipient of several international residencies. Hasager is the supervisor and program leader of Critical and Pedagogical studies at Malmö Art Academy, and is teaching at the International Academy of Art – Palestine, Dar al-Kalima College, Bethlehem.
