Patty Chang (b. 1972) emerged from New York’s alternative art scene of the mid-1990s, producing works dealing with themes of gender, language, and empathy. Throughout her career, Chang has challenged the parameters of performance and its power as a storytelling vehicle. From her tough-to-take, boundary-busting performance-video work that explored the complex psychic narrative behind often visceral solo performances, to more recent experimental films and lecture-performances, she addresses issues she observes in contemporary society and places her own body in intense situations in responsive performance and video.
