Mimian Hsu Chen

  • Costa Rica-based artist Mimian Hsu works with photography, documents, typography, and objects to construct site-specific installations, performances, and projects that explore intersecting cultural identities. As the daughter of Taiwanese immigrants who grew up in Latin America, Hsu has long been interested in hybridized identities and histories. Drawing on her own autobiography and the historical shifts and migrations between Asia and Latin America, Hsu draws upon photographs, archives, architectures, and typography to create site-specific interventions, installations, and performances that speak to this duality of culture, assimilation, and erasure.
