Charwei Tsai was born in 1980 in Taipei. She graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in Industrial Design and Art History in 2002 and moved to New York and worked for artist Cai Guo-Qiang for two years. She assisted in projects such as Kimen Bunker Museum of Art, the first China Pavilion in Venice Biennale, Cai’s retrospective at Guggenheim, and proposal for Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony. In 2005, Tsai exhibited her own work for the first time at Fondation Cartier’s young artist exhibition where she wrote a Buddhist scripture onto tofu and let the sacred text transform with the changes of the material. She then participated in the First Singapore Biennale and 6th Asia-Pacific Triennial and had solo exhibitions in Paris, Tokyo, Sydney, Bogota, Hong Kong, and Beijing. In addition to her artwork, Tsai publishes an independent periodical – Lovely Daze and organizes music performances and talks.

For this public discussion at TCAC hosted by curator Amy Cheng, Tsai will speak about the concept behind her work with the emphasis on the past experiences working with institutions where professional collaborations have extended to long-term friendships and support.
