Lili Chin is a visual artist based in New York City. Her interdisciplinary art practice incorporates natural materials, film, video, ceramics, weaving, and mixed media to mine historical and personal narratives. She is inspired by nature, ancient rituals, nomadism, and personal memory. Her installations and films arrange carefully crafted and gleaned objects with archival elements to re-enchant disappearing traditions and concepts. She has exhibited internationally in the U.S., Latin America, Europe, and China, and has been awarded several grants and fellowships. She has also created commissioned installations for museums and institutions in the U.S. and China, including the He Xiangning Museum in Shenzhen and the Ely Center of Contemporary Art, CT. She has participated in several residencies, including the The Studios at Mass MoCA in North Adams, MA, Weir Art Farm in Connecticut, Swatch Art Peace Hotel in Shanghai, and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She is a visiting assistant professor at Central Connecticut State University and LaGuardia Community College.
